    Now, I've only taken a couple semesters of Economics, but what little I've learned leads me to think that perhaps shoppekeepers would be well-advised to raise the prices they're willing to pay for materials, and raise the prices of the goods they sell.


I did that, before letting go of the Alpha tailor. I raised profits on selling cloth to me 500%, me own profit margins 300%, and doubled the amount of stock-on-hand (where I could). Didn't help at all. I just made a lot more money, and still sold out of cloth in between one time I logged in and the next. Meanwhile any colors got scarcer and scarcer.
