Anyways, I'm not going to argue the buy for each month, only what you can afford or for a year thing with you anymore. Cause after that 6 monthes is up, then what 3 monthes worth, then 2, then 1, then you need a loan to pay for the goods for the next month again.

No, 'cause in the interim the company has made more money.

In Jan it can afford to buy through, say, June but not through Dec. By May, however, it has earned enough money to buy through Dec.

If, by contrast, in Jan, even not having the money, it buys through Dec, then it takes out the loan it wouldn't have had to otherwise and so starts loosing money in interest payments it wouldn't be loosing otherwise.

In the real world, if you went to the bank for a loan, you would be given the choice of say 5, 10, 50, 100K based on your credit. If you only wanted 46K, they still give you 50K. If you pay money back early, usually you pay a fee.

Quite right on that. And I seen nothing unrealistic about having quantized loan quantities.

It's just that $20B is way too much for a minimum for corps.

Options of 5, 10, 15, 20 etc would make much more sense -- and make for better functioning and stability of automated corps.
