Economics is the art rather then the science of developing and managing an economy. I have been experimenting with a new approach made possible by recent changes to the program.
I have developed a large lending program and at present have 5.1 T in loans to other players. While this represents a loss of direct money it has enabled me to almost completely pay for hositals and education. At present I am short by 1 b in interest payments.
In theory while in the safe mode and with a bit of luck it may be possible to build up interest payments to cover more of the monthly running costs.
