question for the market...
stuff placed on the market isn't included in your net worth,
and you lose 20% of the value when you take it back off,
for some reason i thought we used to pile food there to store net

You can't remove stuff from the market anymore. Instead you can sell directly to mercs.

Given the inability of the food market to get off the ground this set, I have tweaked it so that prices will not start to drop until at least 5 billion food are on the market. Price will always be above average as long as less than 5 billion food is present.

This will be a gradual change over the next two days or so as the market equilibrates.

Kind of clumsy, but let's see how it shapes up.

Seems like it might be overtuned?

There's a pretty big opening for someone to play my Ferret strategy from last round and forage their way to huge profits atm.

Disclaimer:  I believe I've sold the most food on the market this round.

I think it's working alright.  I listed enough to get value over the hump and down to $17 ea (-10% market tax = $15.3) and someone bought most of it. 
There's only two bil food on the market at the moment, half of that mine, so there's still substantial demand. 

If a Ferret wanted to flood the market the price would crash. 
iirc I calc'd the 'break even' for a leader player of making cash vs food to sell to be ~$12/ea 
So if it'll stay there or above I'm happy to continue supplying, clearly people need food, or don't value their cash.

Yea, there's an element of supply management to the food market in particular. A ferret who dumped a crapload of food on the market all at once would crash the price. But if you dump the same amount in 5 shipments over 5 days, the price basically stays stable the whole time. OPEC but for food.

But yea, I'm the other one selling food, and people are buying it even at 19. Crazy.
