I am curious how the game assigns a cash value to things like mining stations for trading purposes. If you build a gas mining station in an AIs system and then offer to sell it to him you can frequently get him to pay 100k to 300k credits for it, even though it costs only about 2.5k to build. In the trade screen it looks like the assigned value is shown, but it can be really large. How does a station that cost 2.5k to build get to be worth 300k in trade? I regularly finance my empire this way when I get into a cash crunch, but it almost seems like an exploit.

It is indeed one and the AI will need to be tuned some in order to avoid such dealings. That's what the border system in the upcoming expansion will try to fix as well. Since it's obviously more important for the AI to buy back your station in their sytem the solution is to make it more difficult for you to build it there in the first place.
