To draw a conclusion from my point:

Economics is very similar to the science of psychology-- it is the science of decision-making. To properly create a simulation of an economy, the members of it, including the states, have to act like people would. That means that they must act reasonably (for the most part.) At the very least, this means following the profit motive. Why aren't C3s spamming Gasoline corporations? They should be doing this even in "surplus", because even then it's more profitable than Wool or the other shit that C3s are making. I recently started an experiment on the steel industry-- I'm going to show the flaw in the game mechanics by showing how a president can singlehandedly drive the price down by utilizing the moronic C3 behavior and the flawed measurement of demand and supply.

So I'd advise anyone against investing in steel for the time being. :)
