I'm raking in about 300 billion of surplus cash, but I may be taking loans. I paid off all my loans with a due date of more than 3 years which dropped me to about 300 billion in cash and 700 billion in loans. Given the 5% penalty its not worth paying off the rest. But given all the frequent amounts of money I need to randamonly spend to spend to fine tune my corps I may well run out of cash and have to take new loans.
Now i'm a Noobie, just playing for about a week, but does nobody take out loans ever later in the game to finance infrastructure or build/invest in corps. If that is the case then the lowest level of interest rates need to be lowered so that they become an instrument that is used for long term investment. It should be reasonable to borrow money for expensive building projects, which if used properly would provide greater long-term cash increases then the cost of the loans. that is how businesses and countries/states/cities all operate.
