15 million would employ far more than 100 people when you consider most folks in the industry aren't making big money. We're not talking triple figure incomes here I'm guessing.
As far as I understand it 15 million is sales at shops and other channels. Subtract what shop gets, subtract printing and shipment costs, taxes, and what is left is probably much lower number.
How much shops get? 10-15%? Transport? 10-15%? Taxes?
That drops it to 10 million. Are we suggesting people are getting paid $100 000 us per year in the roleplay market (100 people for combined salary of 10 mill).
However, the exact figure is irrelevant. I think Scott was trying to point out that the rpg industry is tiny in terms of people who work in it as developers. I just got all pedantic is all. Naughty of me really. Sorry all.
You appear to be forgetting production costs?
