I agree 100% Nimz. As a primarily economic player, I set up full supply chains between enterprise and country. The purpose of the contracts was to ensure supplies and profit to all parties. With the flexible pricing, it WAS possible to maintain profitability between both parties. Now, I'm as much a slave to the market as if I hadn't bothered to be self-sufficient. Oh well, I can build a few hundred services corps and buy off the market like everyone else. You are so right. As abuse goes, this is definitely the baby with the bath water. The intent here seems to be to control overmilitarism at the expense of economics. The solution to that is simple. Tie revolts to pop levels and economic indexs and drastically expand their effects. Want to maintain an OI of 500 with your EI at 40? Fine. Get a revolt at every corp, every month til the situation changes. That coupled with the inherited empire debt would put a halt to most of the real abuses.
