One of the options on the screen when starting a new game is the Simple/Advanced Economy...why do I have a problem interpreting buttons like this?

It's a simple concept, and yet when I come across these buttons I have a problem working out what it means...when it says Simple Economy does that mean I am playing with Simple Economy or do I have to click on it to play with Simple Economy....but if I clikc on it, the button changes to Advanced Economy....so does that mean I'm playing with Advanced Economy or I have to click on it if I want to play Advanced Economy...

I never seem to be able to tell if the button is saying what you have selected or whether you have to click on what it says to play with that option...

A simple thing that always confuses me for some reason that I do not understand...I work with computers. I program languages. I am very aware of boolean variables and on/off/yes/no/0/1...but these buttons always play tricks with my head!

Of course, this is rhetorical because I know...but they do confuzzle me every time I come across them!

Just thinking out loud after being out on the booze all night (birthday tommoz!), installed the game and that was one of the first things that jumped out at me!

I think the issue is, some programmers set them up to be the next one listed and others program them to be what is listed

so we need to get the programmers to get it togeather and do it the same way
