Our first challenge is to create an entire economic infrastructure, from

top to bottom, out of whole cloth. No gradual evolution from previous
economic systems is possible, because there IS no previous economic
system. Each interdependent piece must be materialized simultaneously
and in perfect working order; otherwise the system will crash out
before it ever gets off the ground.

—CEO Nwabudike Morgan,
“The Centauri Monopoly”

Early industry on Planet centered on the creation of a frontier Industrial Base featuring primitive assembly lines and simple currency instruments. Soon, leaders in the financial sectors push for a more comprehensive Industrial Economics policy to accommodate free trade and other strategies for multiplying capital.
