thanks for the reply :)

it seems really counter-intuitive that strong empires/feds can exist side by side without economic competition. in fact apart from security concerns, which is minimal due to shared defences and attack limits, strong powers can pretty much ignore each other. that's pretty unrealistic :(

regionalised trade wouldn't mean fewer buyers as you've said, but since high-quality goods are only produced by players and CEOs, some regions might only have low quality goods available. it would however screw up the weapons market- i don't see anyway around that.

as i see it, regionalised trade will balance out in all areas and reach near-equilibrium conditions in all areas. this is because the production capacity is everywhere equal to demand. it's just that it would take time for each regional economy to change corps to match regional demand. the natural mechanism for this is the short life span of the c3 countries corps. when new ones are built, they react to demand, and it would balance out production vs. demand in a region relatively quickly.

i think you might be right about it slowing the servers down though :P
i know that terrorism, economic R&D and military intelligence are to be implemented soon. are there any other changes that are to be made to the game that have been anounced?
