That's what the Dividends portion of the player stocks thang was for.  As for the corporations, this is still pretty generic stuff.  It can be made more complex, with customized corporations that rely on individual patterns of events to adjust their prices.

Expand on the idea of shared losses, please.  That might be useful in the player thang.

Somewhere on (I didn't save the URL :P) there's rules for something called Solitaire Nomic.  It starts with mutable and immutable rules.  The object is to eliminate all the rules except a particular immutable rule, then eliminate that one too.  Maybe it inspired Uin.  Maybe.  I was never too sure what inspired Uin...
