Eliminate competitors during catastrophes

 

Especially plagues suited to drive the AI out of the town.

 

Due to the high death rate, factories will lose a large amount of workers and the demand for goods will decline. When the amount of workers in the factories is near zero and you flood the locale market with goods, the AI will break down its factories very fast.

 

As the demand for goods is very low, only a small amount of goods is needed to accomplish the desired goal.
