The gold increases as the game progresses, but the jungle (and lanes too) are also progressively becoming everyone's property. Not to mention you quickly lose access to your buffs.
I think the total gold gain from the new jungle breaks even with the S2 jungle around the 11 minute mark, and that leaves you a very small window to get a decent gold income. In my opinion this should be changed drastically.
It breaks even at 11 minutes with Shyvana if you use the wrong runs, masteries and probably items.
It is more like 10 minutes for her.
And with some other junglers (especially singlet target ones), they get equal at around 8 minutes.
And that without adding the extra 3g/10.
