Fixing market supply idea

Topics: Suggestions: Fixing market supply idea

I have seem multiple discussions about the market lacking items that people need because not enough corps make them. I have an idea to fix this based on my experience in another game.
The game could have non-player corps that supply things at much higher than players normally sell them at (like selenium)or pay their workers significantly lower than the average wage (like only 100%). This would make them available for players that need them but also have an incentive for players to set up their own corps. You could also exclude certain items like war material. These corps could be placed in non-active countries. As countries are taken over by players, these corps could even be dissolved.
I am wondering if it is hard to get new players because they get frustrated at not being able to get supplies they need. This would also damp down some of the wild swings in suppliers that make a corps that makes a lot of money into loses by the next year.

I'm neither endorsing or against these ideas, but I will say that I find the idea of non-player coprs having a lower wage interesting.

There are countries in the game without a president and they are building corporations to produce products that are in short supply.

They do not build weapons and ammo corporations.

Many of the corporations with a large shortage are making very high profits as the price ranges have been increased recently.

Our advise is to build such corporations, if needed get more population, make more of these products and make more money.
