The rules say that income is to be paid after the Loading phase.
Wouldn’t it make more sense to pay income immediately after the Purchase phase?

Income can neither be altered nor used during the Loading phase.
Following the rules just introduces a memory exercise, along with the potential for bickering.

Those of you with infallible memories probably can’t make sense of my question, but how about the rest of you?
Is the game somehow better by waiting to pay income?
Am I overlooking something?

Income is received after the Loading Phase.

He knows it. He is asking why.

It is unclear that he does know it. You never pay income. You receive income.

I don't think there is an issue here. Rulebook has to be well arranged. Loading just logically follows purchase, so this makes the rules more clear at first. You can play loading and income at the same time, I guess.

You did not highlight the "receive" in your message.

Anyway, "you", controlling the game flow, has to "pay" to "you", the player.

Which is why I am unclear if he knows it.

I agree with your reasoning for why income is last though.

Excellent point. I should have said distribute, as in from the stock to the players.

Short-term memory is not the only thing that is fading.
