Missing sales - any one know?

The country of Grand Marshall is being short changed on the market. Over 200 million products sold or evaporated on the world market in the past month. Products no longer show in stock.

No recent sales to view in world trade. Materials sold or used by the government = 0. Cash changes year to date also do not reflect any sales.

I have no clue of where else to look. The products are gone, and I can't find any kind of paper trail.

Have countries now been disallowed in some form from competing on the world market? A few hundred billion here, a few hundred billion there, pretty soon you're talking about real money (to paraphrase Wall St. brokers).

Perplexed as usual,

Come on. Nothing like this ever happens.

If you have a specific problem, specify the details.
what products, when and how many.

the system is transaction oriented and it takes the money after the product is delivered.

I'll begin listing them, so far it's happened with every product I've sold on the world market. I'll see what I still have in stock and start putting them here. I'll include product, offered numbers for sale, quality, and date placed in world trade.

Look for a post this time tomorrow, with the data, or with me eating crow.

Also take into account all the products your country uses each month and the ammunition and other materials that are shipped to your military units and used on monthly bases with each weapon you have.

Not sure how that would tie into individual product sales. Should have plenty of ammuntion, gasoline, aircraft fuel, military supplies and services, and spare military units on hand. I'm seeing a huge price differential - products actually sold listed below.

Strategic stock offered on April 13, 3020 by Grand Duchy of Marshall, Golden Rainbow.

Airplanes - 25, Average Quality (hereafter AQ though this shouldn't affect price as I understand it) 244, @300 million each unit price. Reduction of price:1% per month (this will be constant for all). Expected income: 7,500 M SC$

Books & Newspapers - 20 million, AQ @ 1750 each.
Expected Income: 35,000 M SC$

Corn - 7 million AQ 256 @ 750 each. Expected Income: 5,250 M SC$

Electronic Components 4 million AQ 226 @ 1750 each. Expected Income : 7,000 M SC$

Industrial Equipment 1,611,229 AQ 205 @ 1880 each. Expected Income: 2,900,212,200

High Tech Service : 20 Million AQ 190 @1500 each. Expected Income: 30,000 M SC$

Oil: 5 million AQ 319 @ 1750 each. Expected Income: 8,750 M SC$

Soybeans : 19.4 Million. AQ 257 @ 1000 each. Expected Income: 19,400 M SC $

Total Expected Income :(leaving out the Industrial Equipment for easier computation) 112,900 M SC$. Less 3 % (figuring loss of each month, and all these products sold in 3rd month)
109,513 M SC $ (without the addition of the Industrial Equipment. I'll surrender those freely)

so we have expected income of : 109,513,000,000. That's about 10 times what I have in country right now, including converting all gold coins in stock into cash.

Books & Newspapers AQ was 240 - my apologies, didn't proofread closely enough.

Problem found - I'm an idiot. I owe an apology. I leave it up to the GM on whether it is short and sweet, or long and flowery.

Lol Marshall.

BTW, it would probably really help many who read this and other threads if you explained the mistake/misunderstanding you made :) Let the rest of us learn from your mistakes. Ta.

When you do napkin math, make sure it's not soggy. Real easy to mistake a . for a , - and then to make a fool out of yourself over a little tail.

Nod. Ah, well. Grist for the mill. Next step will be improving my math skills to do it all in my head, in preparation for the war game. Got to be able to project force ratios and projected losses in real time, quickly and efficiently.
