Re: Am I missing something?
^Ditto. I'm going to nudge up prices slightly, but I hate gouging people too much and I haven't met ANYONE who will actually go out and buy cloth to trade to me. I'm letting people know now that I'll pay a decent profit margin for cloth, as soon as I determine a 'standard'.
I believe that raising prices didn't/doesn't have any effect because there are so few things to spend money on for newer players (boats/rum/shot, clothes, swords) that people don't really mind paying that money for clothing, because it's really not all that expensive unless you kick the prices way up (300 for a bandana would be fun to try**).
In my opinion, there's very little diminishing marginal utility (think that's the fancy ec. term, I took a bumper course once) for clothes either, because not very many people can be satisfied with just one color or shirt. You could have several sets of clothing*. Little to no reason to stop buying.
**(...but I'd be undercut by my Alpha competition anyway).
*(I practically recycled any money that I'd win with Rifkind in her stores)
