I’ll agree that buying gold is analogous to outsourcing. The reasons that both occur are very similar. I don’t like outsourcing, you may not like outsourcing- I’m pretty sure most people don’t, yet it happens because people would rather spend less than employ American factory workers.The point is- if you support Nike making shoes in China instead of the States so your Jordans won’t cost $500, you’re like a gold buyer. If you merely tolerate outsourcing as a necessary evil, but understand the reasons why Nike does what they do, those reasons are very similar to why someone would buy gold. If you’d rather pay $500 for a pair of Nikes (I don’t think most people are like this), you are not a gold buyer.Outsourcing, like gold buying, will never go away until we address the reasons why it occurs. Doing so in WoW (must like in RL) would drastically change the game as we know it.
