... and the cycle continues, or not? What is going on with the EVE economic cycle?

Insurance changes, planetary interactions and an improved demographic section are now all included in the latest Quarterly Economic Newsletter for EVE Online.   In this issue we also have the standard price level discussion, indices and the market snapshots.  In Q2 of 2010 there were some very interesting fluctuations seen in the overall economy, the most significant one being a break in the standard economic cycle around expansions.  This shift in the cycle is attributed to insurance and loot changes but what do you think?  Are there some underlying factors in place that have changed the EVE economy?  What do you think?  Read the QEN and comment as if there is no tomorrow!
