The problem is catching defectors. OPEC (almost) works because all the members sell on an open market; everybody else in OPEC can see when somebody else in the cartel makes a sale and for how large the sale is. When somebody breaks the rules, everybody else gears up their production which lowers the price.In the meantime, your AH cartel membership has the power of alts. Iran can't pretend that it's actually Persia undercutting the cartel by fractions of a dollar on the barrel, and nobody believes that Babylon and Sumeria aren't really Iraq, but there really isn't any way to prove that Bankofzerg is breaking the cartel using his alt Zergbank, which is silly because his cartel-breaking alt is Mrmumblepins.
