JG, governments do effect demand in SC.

In fact once the materials accounting is fixed and after materials accounting starts to have have a noticable effect on the financial position of a country the level of government intervention will increase. Presidents will be able to make a tidy profit for their country by buying goods when there is an oversuplly and the price has bottomed, and then selling those goods back to the country at higher prices.

Presidents already do effect the demand for products. Long term via choice of defences and of the health, education and transport indexes, and through wage levels. Medium term via their choice of offensive military, and on its rate of glorious destruction. Short term on the ordering of their purchases, a president knows what they want to acquire long/medium term, and the order that they go about acquiring that often reflects the spot price of goods (elementary schools are in short supply, I'll buy high schools this month instead).

JG, you are always free to start your own economic sim.
