Don't get me wrong, I am loving AE, but the economic model seems disturbingly....well..... Keynesian

Hardly. The model is vastly more sophisticated than anything conceived by Keynes. The are for example, two types of raw material necessary for production.

Actually the economic model is based on the writings of another great thinker named Maynard:

Maynard G. Krebs

ECONOMIC MODEL? Are you sure you are talking about WITP? The Allies (who actually had an economy) don't even have a "production model". And the Japs (who's economic model was pretty much "try to steal and ship home enough resources to keep the factories running".) aren't really facing many economic challanges either.

What were you looking/hoping for?

For me, as the Allies, the economy seemingly boils down to this:

Ship vast quantities of fuel to OZ to be inefficiently exchanged for 10 Wirraways a month.

I'm tempted to let Australia die of thirst. At least what goes to New Zealand, stays in New Zealand.

How is the AE economic model Keynesian?

I hope we don't have to start making decisions on interest rates and money supply, it's getting a little complex as it is!

The economic model in WITP most likely is much more closely tied to the work of Wassily Leontief rather than that of J.M. Keynes:

quote:

Leontief earned the Nobel Prize in Economics for his work on input-output tables. Input-output tables analyze the process by which inputs from one industry produce outputs for consumption or for inputs for another industry. With the input-output table, one can estimate the change in demand for inputs resulting from a change in production of the final good. The analysis assumes that input proportions are fixed; thus the use of input-output analysis is limited to rough approximations rather than prediction. Input-output was novel and inspired large-scale empirical work.

And, believe me, the work of Leontief (and Keynes) was vastly more sophisticated than anything that might appear in WITP/AE.

Sorry have to disagree with you there… Being a New Zealander I can tell you some facts:

#1 there is currently 5 million Kiwis living on this planet, 4 million living in New Zealand, with 1 million living and working overseas. We export our people!

#2 the New Zealand banking industry is owned by Australian banks, and the energy industry by Canadian companies. Both these industries are making vast profits though price gouging, and shipping these profits overseas by the Container Ship. We export our money!

On the way...

BTW: I would say that a Japanese player who in July 1944 still controls Darwin, Port Moresby, Guadalcanal and Tarawa is not losing...
