I think there are some changes that could be implemented into simcountry to make the game more realistic and fun.

Currently market price is firmly regulated by simcountry. Simcountry regulates this within tight price ranges and limits how fast a price can increase at. By changing this it could make the game more realistic and more fun to play

The Market price of goods could be determined by how much they are sold for and bought for.

For example a corporation that produces electricity would sell electricity to a corporation that needs it. The corporation selling would offer its electricity at a set price or a certain percentage above the previous month's average market price and decrease by a certain percent every month basically the same as the economy currently works and of course corps buying it would increase their price every month.

However the difference would be the way in which the average market price is determined. I propose that a formula which takes in to account the previous months average market price and the average price at which goods were sold at in the current month to determine the current months average market price.

It could be something like

A = P + 1/4(T-P)

A=average market price of current month
P=average market price of previous month
T=average price at which goods were sold at this month.

Additionally there would be no restrictions on how high or low the prices could go instead countries without a president would simply build corporations automatically which produce products that are in high demand.

We regularly study this to see how far we can open up market prices to fluctuations and it has changed over the years, but there will never be no limit as it could have catastrophic consequences.
There would also be the risk of a small group of powerful players taking full control of a world economy by targeting specific products.
