I've noticed the comments of some irritated that a company or coorp doesn't "panic" about its raw materials until the month that they become dangerously low... which, in the case of some commodities, can be a problem.

Would it be possible to add a field for coorporations and countries: the quantity of a raw material to stockpile.

E.g. Aluminum needs chemicals, coal, electric, etc. When there's a glut of those on the market, stock is fine. But if one of them gets rare for a while, the company's stock drops... But it only panics and gets more aggressive in buying when there's inadequate stock for the current month's production, right?

Why not add a field where the company can specify how much stock it wants to keep? E.g. the aluminum coorp wants to keep a minimum of 300% of monthly use of chemiclas, 250% of monthly use of coal, 150% of monthly use of electricity, etc.

These quantities can serve as the "threshold" for more aggressive buying. That way the company can react *before* the stock is so low that it doesn't have enough resources for the *current* month.

Much more realistic that way -- and might also, I imagine, buffer the market somewhat from quite so drastic swings in availablity?

Same thing could be done with a country's stockpile of monthly-used (or strategically acquired) commodities.
