This is how Steve Bannon, the crazy Trump minion, became a millionaire. When World of Warcraft became a global phenomenon, he went to China, set up video-game-playing factories, and paid hundreds (if not thousands) of young Chinese to sit in them and play World of Warcraft 24 hours a day, “farming” (as it’s called) for virtual gold, which he would then sell internationally for real money. Yes, some game-players are that stupid. Later he emerged in the USA as a wise and thoughtful businessman, qualified to advise us about economic, military, and foreign affairs.
