Re: how would you build a colony?

Raw materials are all in all easier to deal with than ready made items, take steel, its all about when what kind of steel is in demand so its much simpler to buy raw metal ores and then produce the right kind of steel when its needed, this is how things go nowadays, take the car industry for example, when they need 10.000 tons of steel NOW, they will get it NOW, not a day ago and not a day later, stuff in storage costs money, delays too.
