Foreign investment

A foreign investment policy would fit perfectly into the current game. The more restrictions on foreign investment the more poorly your economy performs. The less restrictions the more dynamic the economy becomes, but this will upset the patroits and to a lesser extent trade unions. You could even have situations like a foreign takeover bid for a company in a strategic industry like oil & gas.
