From what I read people complained about shops closing up or less turnover in baskets meaning goods being stocked less and less. As a result there is instability in goods reliability. Because there is no reliability in goods, it gives a false sense of economic stabilization. The thing that’s stabilizing is the way people are doing their trading. @deenw made a well thought post previously exploring the barter system and Boundless. So yes the economy is stabilizing as far as goods being available. Stabilizing as far as coin value is concerned I believe is a different problem.
I thought that’s how this whole conversation began, talking about about folks not liking bartering and then people chiming in they did do primarily barter and why they chose to barter instead of use coin.
