Okay, perhaps this is just being a clueless NooB, but, as best as I can tell, when I set up a local market contract, my corps *still* keep buying an additional 100% on the world market.

In other words, even if they're already getting a month's worth of goods every month in local contracts, they nevertheless *also* buy a month's worth of goods on the world market.

The upshot is that my companies are driving themselves into debt because they're stocking, in some cases, up to TWO HUNDRED months' worth of some supplies.

(A) Is this true?

(B) If so, is this really how corps are *supposed* to manage contracts?!!

(C) If so, why the h*ll?! This seems to me totally to defeat the purpose or benefit of having local contracts in the first place.
