Bankers obviously lol


Bankers and GE workers are a bit of a mystery to be sure: they go to work each day, and stand there servicing hundreds of customers 24 hours a day. Nobody in their right minds would do that if they weren't being paid well. And they're well-groomed as you'd expect, which further supports their high wages.

However, where are those wages coming from? It certainly doesn't come from us, since nothing from our bank is taken as a levy, nor are our GE exchanges taxed. In a system where neither the buyer nor the seller supports the middleman that allows the entire thing to work, who exactly is paying them?

But this is all swerving a bit off-topic since the thread is asking who is the richest NPC thanks to the players. Although I suppose you could say that if it wasn't for the custom provided by the players, the banks and Grand Exchange would have little reason to exist, so those workers do have us to thank for their wage packets in a sense.

But even then, whoever is actually paying them is probably getting their money from us in a way we currently don't know about. And he probably only pays his bank and GE staff a portion of what he makes.

So I guess it would be "him" whoever he is :D

Whichever God we've been burying all those bones for. I prefer to be called "Sao." That's pronounced Say-oh. Not Sow. Not Saw. Not Sword Art Online. Not Soh-uh-oh (A la Mod MattHe). Sao. "Say-oh." Sao!
