if everyone pays the abrasax family (and any other soylent producers) real money for their monoproduct, what do the abrasaxi //buy//? the most valuable substance in the universe is something they mass-produce themselves, they more than anyone have an effectively infinite free supply
so what do they do with everyone elses money, and if they have so much of it, why did margaery pay anime hair and featherhawk in soylent?
it strongly suggests that credits do represent a soylent standard, and that the abrasaxi run effectively a barter economy, making them kingmakers and power brokers to whom all are indebted for their longevity
which is a good source for simmering resentment and a tiered series of impending rebellions from the bourgeousie down to the proles
man i hope this does well because i want them to just keep making sequels, this is such a delightful mashup of thor and riddick
