Loved the seminar about the Economy. Blink

Particularly liked the part about "new fees" and taxes to balance the ISK faucet concerns... Blink

SOOOOOO.... Docking Fees (pure speculation on my part) at all stations in High Sec ?

Be very nasty if that docking fee *ALSO* takes CARGO VALUE into account for factoring the cost of the Docking Fee at any given docking. OH, the HOWLS OF AGONY that would come from JITA ! ! ! Twisted

just thinking out loud. Blink

Docking fees? Tax the air we breath instead, you'll kill us all faster. Taxes based on caro? Good way to slow down economic development. Higher taxes on market? All it will do is increase spreads and stifle competition in an increasingly deflationary environment, a reduction in market granularity and activity will be the result.

More taxes in Eve will do little more than make those with a lot of ISK that much more rich. Eve's economic imbalances are not going to be solved with just ISK sinks.

I'm completely in favour of docking fees, so long as they are dynamic. I would love to see stations with high traffic charge a lot, and stations that maybe get one or two people a day charge next to nothing. Would help spread people out and curb the problem that is Jita. And would help farm tears. Good for everyone (except if you play docking games in Jita all day)

The more isk sinks, the better.

I'm in favour of docking fees in highsec for ships bigger than cruisers; I'm also in favour of an increase in market transaction taxation in highsec that possibly change dynamically.

Lowsec stations should not be affected by this.

I'm rather sure this will be primarily aimed at transaction tax and broker fees. Especially modifying orders is too cheap. It might hurt newbie traders trading with maybe 5-10% gain, but in the long run everyone would benefit from it, because people would stop cutting prices by just a few ISK (if at all).

Looking for more thoughts? Follow me on Twitter.

Are you assuming that "guy with no life" will be taxed less ? If so, why ?

docking fees are terrible ideas, more market fees might be ok but not much.

Terrible idea.

If there is to much ISK in EVE, reduce the amount being pumped out. Not everyone is an ISK farmer.

Awesome idea. Base docking fees off of how many people are in the station and the size of the ship. I think taxing based on cargo is a bit much. Low sec should have no fees to give people more of a reason to operate out of it. Hell in really annoying places like Jita there should be a tax on speaking in local.
