So, let me show you something from my recent game.
It takes 27% off my GDP, which I feel like is a bit too much? As it leads to destruction of entire economy, and whist I do understand the fact that Corporations own a lot, I think them being able to literally destroy entire economy of country, with you having no recourse but to work with them is a bit too railroad-y. I do understand that happening in let’s say country like Ghana, or Ivory Coast, smaller and less populous third world countries, but I don’t think such amount of leverage over government is possible in 1st world country like UK.
And just as with other topic that I started, I feel like main problem here is not the fact that it is too strong, that can be balanced easily, but the fact you cannot do anything about it, you either are pro-corporate, or your entire economy goes into gutter, even if you nationalised everything you can nationalise. And whist yes, nationalisation has it’s own set of problems, I believe that at least in this case, it could help. Generally, my issue here is that you cannot do anything against them, but swim with current, even if you establish de-facto dictatorship.
