Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And the FIRE sector goes into the boxes "Money supply" and "Rental prices of capital," no?

For that matter, there is another serious defect: There should be a political variable for "Profit levels" just as there is a political variable for "Private hourly compensation" - both of these go into the "Unit Costs."

And in my naivety, I thought that the rental price of capital (which is not, in the mature corporation, the same thing as the profit extraction variable) also had a direct influence on unit price in capital-intensive companies. At least if they have "efficient" balance sheets...
