MY DEAR WIGS
I would like to suggest that you 'hire' (I have no idea if he'd charge you, but I expect he'd help for free) Kemal Ergenekon to help with the economic module updates.
Kemal is sitting a PhD in economics and has spent years in eRepublik. His familiarity with the mechanics of the game, and understanding of economic systems would be an invaluable tool in your work. His newspaper oftentimes speaks directly to the economic module of this game, and does so eloquently and concisely.
I know a number of eRep staff visit the eUSA forums and have read his posts, perhaps you've spoken to him privately at times and I'm not aware. He's polite, he won't flame nor troll you with his suggestions, and he'll provide as much support as he can.
So again, I suggest that you bring Kemal on to the team in some capacity. Give him access to all of your data. Sure, make him sign the NDA you give the mods, I doubt that will be an obstacle, but do not hide data from him.
Help him, help you (help us).
