If everyone gets a proportional increase to their income that shouldn't affect the economy in a very meaningful way because it would simply devalue the Gold unit of currency for everyone.
Although, they don't even need to increase the amount of gold people are receiving. Just reduce the gold players get from monsters dropping gold by X% and then increase the value of the average common drops to balance out the value lost in gold drops. Same income, and common items have value again, making them valuable but still useless.
