    Default FIAT: Cash Maximum

    APPENDIX A: FINANCIAL SYSTEM, Section D Currently reads as follows:

    D. There is no cash maximum.

    This is being changed to:

    D. Cash Limits

    1. Teams will not earn cash above a total of $20 million. The portion of a team's profits, both regular and postseason, that extend a team's cash total above $20 million shall be distributed evenly to other eligible teams.

    2. A team may not make trades that would push its cash total above $20 million.

    If there is any phrasing that might tighten this up, I'm open to making adjustments. However, the idea is that teams will be capped at $20M cash held. If you have $19M and manage to make $5M, you get $1M and forfeit the rest.

    Note that this rule will not take money away from teams already over $20M in cash.

    "will not earn" is the key phrase here, Bing. This wouldn't take money away from those over 20M, it would just prevent other owners from going over from here on out.

    The other discussion going on is my attempt to get teams currently over down into the acceptable range.

    I like this, too. By not taking cash away from the totals that have been accumulated, it's not penalizing them by taking away what has been earned over years. it's just preventing future accumulation.
