Consider instead a further development of the Gift Economy through revival of pre-missionary customs of the Pacific peoples: potlach, moka, kula and other time-tested status games. Bury their asses in one-of-a-kind gifts of authenticity and astonishment. After the first couple thousand gifts they'll figure it out, and then the fun begins
.The default world is encroaching fast upon our utopia, and just like that corny movie, "the never ending story", i feel the darkness approaching, and am scared for all

As if you'd ever come anyway...

So what if someone pours their own cash into setting up a mega-camp--doesn't everbody funnel their money into their experience?
And does no one understand demographics?
The base population of BRC is getting older, they've got more disposable income, they need a bit more comfort to be able to rest and party like they did on the beach.
Why does it always have to end in the hateful, spiteful, whines of class envy? Why does everyone who doesn't participate exactly like you not get it?
I think that you are the ones that don't get it--
It's not 'from each according to his means' on the playa--it's 'to each according to his dreams'

If a couple of guys who have money want to have delivered a couple of high end RV's out to the Playa, have all of their meals cooked and then be delivered in a private jet with their hookers, all the power to them. If you don't like it, then don't go to Burningman. Let's be honest, a great waste of wealth is Burningman itself. With all of money we spend on Burningman, we could feed a whole lotta people somewhere on the planet. These are not people looking for a vacation but looking to live. When you stop attending Burningman, eat food out of you own garden, walk everywhere and wear clothes you have made, then come back and criticize someone else for how they spend their money.
