i disagree. at least in this game it is quite a nice source of icome to incase customs further and further after having introduces protectionism.
this also gives an incentive to the national economy to identify and utilize substitutes for gazprom gas.

Correct, our scholars indicate that restricting foreign competitions stifles the economy and raises the living cost since citizens don't have access to cheaper goods. Custom is that main cause of this and it should raises only when appropriate. We are allowing foreign competition to compete with our gas, but slowly since we subsidize our industries with the cheap fuel; it would be a grave mistake to immediately subject enterprises to normal market rates. The subsidies only slow the raise of the cost of living since restricting cheaper foreign goods from your markets will eventually take it's toll on your economy. So basically the Gazprom Board of Directors will be ending it's it 20 year stranglehold over the economy.

sidenote: None of my economic implementations have never failed me. I have always been right when putting my theories into practice. Statism hinders only.

I have also been a pretty good mixed-economy statist, where most of the major industries were nationalized but small-scale capitalism was allowed. Wink

The key are not it's laws, but what they intend to do, how, and the effectiveness of the laws themselves as well as the state's capacity to enforce them.

I think certain industries should be nationalized, but not at the expense of the state. If the state cannot run critical infrastructure at a profit or break-even or if the benefits do not totally outweigh the cost; they should be nationalized. Privatization frees up government assets that could be used for more useful ares such as infrastructure or tax decrease both which are proven ways to drive the economy. I have perfected the manner in which a state can be successful and profitable. I now have a booming surplus and am preparing to lower taxes across the board to increase employment and stimulate spending.

I am no longer worried about a balance of trade...why? Well the Libertarian thought is that free trade should always be encouraged. Any government intervention in the economy should be prohibited, as tariffs and such will hurt the consumer with increased prices. My government has taken the approach of pragmatism and prudence. Our role will be strictly in keeping the peace, providing essential services, and protection of rights.

In reality, if your economy is dependent too much on foreign investment a financial crisis will really hurt your economy. I like to give Japan as a nice example, where all its debt is mostly in the hands of domestic investors.
