sometimes, its worth it...or will be ;)

Another note: Oil is now in shortage, and the price is incerasing. If amny of the extant corps are either closed to create moreprofitable ones (by humans) or temporarily shut down, the price will continue to climb...as it should!

Something that ive only seen one person (guess who :) ) do is build many more corporations in a (large) country than the country can support, and then adjust the hiring and production according to current market prices. That way, you become more-or-less immune to price swings, and will ALWAYS have an extremely high corporate average PPW. A fully upgraded corporation with lots of cash is capable of living a long time at reduced production, although it would be nice to be able to put corporations into 'hibernation' and set them to 0% prod/hiring without having them close.

For example, oil prices are low at the moment. Oil corporations perform poorly. But other corporations whichuse oil (gasoline excepted) are performing better than normal (ive checked the recent prifit numbers :) ). A country which had someof these corps to balance out the oil corps could make oil when it was most prfitable, and then make things using that need to use oil when oil prices dropped. Its not all that complicated :)
