Proposal: Production Penalties (trivial)

Timed out and passed, 5-2.  Brendan

Add to the end of the paragraph that begins with “Often, the Government may Advance Time. “:

When the Government is about to Advance Time, if the total amount of Production allocated by a Corporation exceeds that Corporation’s current Production, the Government may adjust that Corporation’s allocated Production to make it comply eith that Corporation’s current Production.

for Although I don’t see why this matters; it’s not like allocating Production you didn’t have was legal before.

for Useful for future cases where the allocation can become illegal as a result of other actions, though.

Yes! Let the government control free enterprise more!!! <sarcasm> As a rule for keeping things working right, it’s good though.But what if the correction could be made if a variety pf ways? For instance, what if the change could be made to 1 less factory OR one less product item? Who decides? If this passes, we will need a way to determine. Perhaps priorities that can be set? Like make factories over cash, make widgets over a new office, etc. for

against Again, there is no guarantee of an impartial government.

I decided unless there is a way to set priorities to decide changes, this just isn’t the best (although not a ‘bad’) idea.

I’m fine with it being at the whim of the Government if it makes his job easier, but I suppose something as simple as “highest numbers get reduced first” would be easy enough to process. (Anything too complicated and it’d open up boring slight-encryption systems where I could set my production to 2637 Cash and 3827 Factories, and work out how that would reduce down when time advanced.)
