as i see it so far common market is rather useless. good only for newbs or companies with low quality upgrades (and some nasty last minute score buildup).

corporation main profit comes through higher price with its quality. even if product it sells hits well below zero (even -10.000 ppw), such company shows profit (depends how much workers and materials used cost, more -> better; thats why oil is golden mine when fully upgraded). assigning such corp to common market is commiting suicide.

for all fully upgraded corps selling on common market is loss. you can sell those products at least as high as immidiate prices go on world market. if market is stable, this is usefull for products with large shortages. but it isnt, it is changing constantly. you end up selling way under price when product is in surplus and can be bought on open market half the price. or you have to update contracts constantly.

i contract part of production to my country (20-30%). it keeps company afloat even in hard market situation and provides vital supplies for industry. in need i sell them back as strategic supplies. it works fine, and can be done fast. except for those which population consumes in huge ammounts (services). i already suggested to separate strategic reserves from country consumption. i really dont care if population has shortage of services when half of my industry stands due to lack of it. plus i would risk high quality for industry, but not for population which doesnt seem to care for it (and cant prevent them from beeing taken).

maybe new kind of contract should be introduced. it executes only when there is shortage of that product on market, otherwise it only waits.
