Remember those gold dupes that Blizzard claimed weren't happening before RMAH patch came out..? Yeah, that's where.
Yeah, basically I finished gearing up about 1 week before 1.0.3 (and beat diablo inferno), spending about 20 million total on my gear in the weeks leading up to 1.0.3. Since 1.0.3 I earned about 25 million farming and spent very little. And I couldn't afford upgrades anymore (actually, forget upgrades, I couldn't even afford gear for my new barbarian).
Inflation rose more than what I could earn, and the gear I bought way back when was worth about 800 million according to yesterdays prices. Hopefully after the buff to high ilvl drops, prices will lower. It would definitely help if blizzard banned all the botters (and gold dupers).
Edited (checked AH history, for more accurate cost totals)

It really is not that hard to figure out guys. Without RMAH and without Bots there would still be massive inflation. When you sell something for 10 mil you just gave that gold to someone else. All this time people are playing the game and making gold. The repair cost and 15% tax on AH sales is a limited gold sink. There will always be more gold in the game today then there was yesterday.
People have to farm the gold. You cannot blame the RMAH because gold is not created without farming.
I tried to farm up some gold to buy a new weapon, and as I was doing so, a weapon that was a HUGE upgrade for me dropped (1H mace with 199 int, 147 vit, a socket, and + damage and +451 life on hit, for a total of 991 DPS).
I was pretty happy. I think with the new hotfixes I'm going with magic find instead of gold find.
This is in no way addresses the issue.
- My items are worth 10-50 times more than what I paid for them. If I would have looked for upgrades a few weeks ago, I could have afforded upgrades easily.
- The money I have isn't from playing the game, it's from selling drops on the AH. I have around 3 mil gold from monsters; half or more of which was spent on repairs and pots trying to do act 4 earlier than I should have, not too mention the million or so I spent crafting worthless junk.
