          Ah heres ANOTHER mistake you said 20 emeralds buy one wheat when that should be the reverse as 20 wheat give you an emerald

          Going off of the mathematical equation that you used the REAL number that Steve and Alex would have IS -Drum Roll- $208,980,000

          You're welcome

            ALSO if your going by game Luigi should technically get HALF of the coins in the main games that he is a 2nd player character in AS WELL AS the THREE stand alone games of Luigi's Mansion 1, 2, and 3 as well as Mario is Missing as I do believe he gets money in that game as well. So really your meth is off in a few areas

            Almost spat my coffee when I saw that American office assistants only get $13.16 an hr. $13 an hour?! That's practically daylight robbery.
            I know American currency is different from mine, but doing the current conversion of usd to aud (Australian currency) that comes to AU$19.22. ... that's still lower than minimum wage. Though not as low as I was expecting it to be ... money conversion is weird. Though, I would definitely not expect an office assistant to be getting minimum wage, office jobs - unless you are entry-level or throwaway worker, get much more than minimum wage.
            The average hourly pay for an Office Assistant in Australia is AU$21.28. that's USD$14.57. Again, not as much of a difference as I was expecting, but that's the average amount, not including bonuses or raises.
            ... Jeese, remind me never to work as an office assistant, tradies make the real bank.

                But the Labor Theory of Value is centuries outdated and just wrong. Economists today use the Subjective Theory of Value.

                  What about hero of the village and the villager slave auto farm. If you can exploit Pokémon for money you can exploit Minecraft for so much more lime AFK fishing or infinite iron with golems. Selling to blacksmiths for emeralds on transformed zombie villager pricing.

                        Just saying that the method of farming in Minecraft that the villagers use is FAR from the most efficient way of getting wheat. So if you use the most efficient way it would be a much higher number

                                    If it helps. Back in Biblical days, a Denarius was a day's wage as well. Doesn't quite apply here, but it could help in a future episode, depending on the time period that games are set in.

                                    Hope that helps, if even a little.

                                        Why would you using painting for the sims, when you can actually garden & keep the same example going. Also, there's so many ways to make money in that game--solely painting is kinda skewing the game's total.

                                            Are you also taking into consideration the Adventurer from Runescape? some pretty efficient way for player to make money in that game. Upwards of probably billions of GP per lifespan and theres also a farming skill that can probably be used to do some math!

                                              I think minecraft needs a redo, if your like me and do everything manually, with this labor measurement, I could earn money from pretty much everything. Think about it, mining, farming, murdering innocent chickens, EVERYTHING because your measuring by labor and time spent

You need to think only in terms of the same tool. If all the workers take about 6 hours to produce a chair, then that's gonna set its value. But if something happens that make ALL the same workers take 8 hours instead, its value will be higher.

I hardly feel that today's treatment of undervaluing hard labour is a good assessment of an economy where the labour is going to be valued very differently. Instead, labour in any game should be valued via a comparison to a real life economy somewhere and/or sometime within our knowledge that is in a similar state as the labour workers of the game.

                                                                            Fun fact: Did you know that farmers make more money creating youtube content then actual farming?

Finally, make expeditions into Dwarven ruins and loot all the smeltable Dwemer metal pieces you can get your summonable butler to carry, plus what you can without being overencumbered. My average one-day expedition doing this usually turns up about 600 Dwarven Metal Ingots once I'm done smelting it all. The slow part is finding someone to sell it all to, because very few merchants can afford to pay thousands of septims in one transaction.

After that gets factored in, you end up with a much lower profit margin. Agriculture is surprisingly expensive, as I’ve found out in my Farm Business Management class in university. The high costs involved and the low profit margins make it risky to get into, hence why it’s so difficult to get bank loans for agriculture.
