Negative assets are hard to overcome.
1) You should have more income than cost projected for the year. (Month to Month only reflects spikes in purchases).
2) Education does not attract workers, it only trains workers you need from the existing population. Available jobs and welfare index attracts workers.
ie: If your welfare index is decent and corps are not hiring at 100% you will "attract" more workers from surrounding countries and see a slightly higher pop increase than from birth rate alone.
Two ways to get more "soldiers" by which I take it you mean LLW's.
1) Increase effectivity in your corps to use less.
2) Trash your education system so you end up with a country of morons. Of course you won't have trained proffessionals anymore either.
You can of course always trade however unless you have a decent education system in place and a high population country, I wouldn't advise it.
You don't decide the price on your shares. You can place limits on what you will buy or sell for .. but ultimately it's how well the corp is doing and demand that sets share prices long term.
In fact if you offer 10M shares at a price above market you will eventually drive the price of shares down.
If you offer to buy 10M shares at a price below market and the game sees a demand causing automatic selling of shares it depends on whether or not any shares offered automatically are sold however if the corp only has 100M shares available the automatic system generally is the only way to buy/sell shares so prices usually increase although I've watched them drop a fair amount also.
You might try deactivating some of your military to control spending. You'll still have it in reserve.
Generally however negative assets is a big problem.
