Back in mankinds medieval economic history when the world was still 'huge' and products from far away countries would come over long trade routes at high value.
Goods became cheaper over time as we gathered the ability to cross distances faster and more efficient as well as generating larger supplies.
To the point were in our modern world countries set import/export taxes to influence the ability to compete on the global market as some products from local production would have no chance of competing with imports from low wage countries.
We have reached a point in time were we try to generate 'distance' between local economies through laws and taxes to sustain our personal wealth based on a growing economy.
With this in mind and remembering how big entropia used to be when there where less teleporters, offering opportunities for trade, social interaction, helping one another with supplies and sales and how 'global' it has become in current days with teleporters and auctions making everything available everywhere allowing everyone to compete everywhere with local economies struggling to compete with the 'central hub' and overproduction killing markups of most materials as well as items...
Do you think that the teleporter system strenghtens or weakens our entropian economy ?
Keep in mind this poll is not about wether you like teleporters or like their convenience, this poll is about your opinion on the economic consequences. Above i showed up the negatives that result from globalisation - TP's create a bigger market which leads to more competition and overproduction/pricedumping which in turn crashes markups and weakens the economy - the question is if you think that there is other factors provided through the better connectivity between remote places that make up for the negatives or even surpass them.
