This is a temporarily named place holder with apologies to Gilbert & Sullivan. It is all in early gestation and may yet be stillborn.
Core problem: Iterative exploitation of leverage opportunities across a three-layered market: Production/sales, transport, futures.
Core concepts: factories, multi-typed transport (road, rail, sea/canal, air etc), 18XX technology/obsolescence, player-grown undirected graph of transport-coloured edges, speculative futures market, demand-based pricing market, hedge operations
In short this is a melange of notions that muddled through the shampoo while in the shower.
