As I said, it's not a problem if income increases. The intrinsic value of the item remains the same. The system remains balanced. Those who make more money than others continue to make more money than others. Inflation only becomes a problem when one of the factors is out of wack. Since Blizzard controls the drop rate of items, the amount of money dailies give, and the amount you have to spend on repairs, it controls EVERY aspect of WoW's economy. Therefore inflation cannot occur.The causes of inflation can occur yes, but the symptoms (eventual crash of the market because of ever increasing costs of living vs. wage) cannot occur because blizzard controls everything.This is why 100% controlled markets do not work in real life. No one can control natural disasters, no one can control a source of iron to make steel running out, these are limited sources and therefore factors that cannot be controlled.
