I don't care if the underlined is a typo or clever pun, but banksters is staying in my lexicon.

I think finding how EVE Online is influencing GDP of Iceland would be easier.


Well maybe not about affecting the GDP, but here are some articles about EvE's survival of the crisis.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/breakingviewscom/5540535/Eve-Online-offers-lessons-for-the-financial-crisis.html (2009)

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2008/dec/22/iceland-recession-banking-collapse (2008)

https://www.engadget.com/2008/12/22/economic-crisis-may-force-ccp-games-to-leave-iceland/ (2008)

Personally, I believe that these articles point to why there is now a Chinese server.
Tapping that market wasn't as important before the collapse.

Edit: Except that the server opened in 2006.... Oh, well.
