I donít like this at all. This has happened several times now. The reason is too low market value and utilization.
Why canít I receive a information instead of this silly computer activity that I cant switch of

It should be up to the president to decide when to close corps.
What will happen with my 5$ investment if the country is made bankrupt?

I'm surprised that no one knows or bothers to answer.

Have anyone had this problem before?

the reason for the closure of your compnaies would be two-fold.

One the level of debt has got too high in the corp - this used toi be £150bn but I think they may have raised this,

Secondly because of a lack of supplies or workers, which you are supposed to manage, there was insufficient productivity from the corp.

Oh hang on while I think of it ...

Another reason could be is that you have set your trade strategies too high and so too expensive compared with the market and therefore no-one wants your product

Or there is a surplus of your product in the market - it is best to pick corps that trade as a deficit to the world market

Or perhaps your tax rate is too high, I tend to try and get my corps tyo IPO and therefore very cash generative through lowering taxes initially and then whack them up when they are generating cash

Tips - well you could enter into a commonmarket and all but guarentee purchase and supply of your corps if you choose the correct partners in the common market

- or keep upgrading and inmproving the salary levels of the employees - although remembert to increase the givernment salaries too. If you look at my corps you will see that they are trading at 120+% with full employment - normally 98-99% for the entire country and most of the corps at 100% as long as you meet the requirements of your country by setting your education priorities and exchanging the employees.

As you can see there is no simple answer and a hell of a lot of variables so it is a comination of several factors !

Plus I think that you should tone down your style of messaging .... when you say no one bothers, that can be regarded as abrasive. You are paying your $5 to SC,, not the people who take time to give you advice. This is all learnt through experience - you should not feel that you should be a master immediately on this game as it is very dynamic and the inluences to war and trade change frequently.

Hope this helps Mr Geer

I`ve just looked at your countries, and although not an expert on this, can I ask if you have formed a common market between your countries and your enterprise?
If all 3 are in a common market the first thing is they sell their goods to each other, including fulfilling your countries` needs, with contracts between each other the value of your corps will increase.
I notice one of your countries is short on cable tv, yet you have 2 cable tv corps in that country, all your corps should be selling its products back to your countries.
If you have more than 1 type of corps in your countries consider closing some of them.
Look at supply and demand
If you wish to join a common market that is already in existence let me know, as I have 4 CEOs and 1 country and can certainly supply your countries and corps with many of its needs

I got this answer from the Webmaster today.
They close because we do not want the world economy
to be loaded with worthless corporations that would have been
closed long before in the real world.

We do however want to introduce an alternative approach.
It will take some time to implement but it is on our list.

It will allow presidents to decide when to close but in the mean
time, it will force them to pay the monthly losses of the corporation.
The country will automatically transfer the amount to the corporation
when the corporations makes a loss and its assets are negative.

This will make them close these corporations a lot earlier.

Lol this will really make the life miserable for a new player.

It would have been wise, (if you did not already) to play in the free worlds. Build a nice stable economy and then transfer the country to GR.

Altho at first, the transfer went horrible(IMO) But they have improved and are much better now. :)

This game can be quite complex and time consuming.

I think Patiance is the key.

Double cheers! :P
