Is the problem the market, then?  Or is it that you give each player
100g when ey starts?

Put it another way: the problem is: where does all the gold come from?

One solution: put a finite amout of gold in the game; give it to the
Market.  Starting players get nothing.  Have the market buy parts at a
fixed fee according to rarity and sell them at a markup.  Then allow
players to swap gold and parts as they wish, arrange their own trades.
