Congratulations to The Perpetual Gridlock of Bureaucratic Paralysis, for having contributed issue #443 to the game. (Only the second issue with one of The Greater New South Hell Coprosperity Sphere's name on it.) This issue was contributed 4 or so years ago, and the long time it took for a version of it to make it into the game somehow seems kind of fitting for that particular nation.
#443 (and #442) is not yet listed. Would you do us the favor of quoting the issue?
443. Five Year Plans and New Deals
The price of most foodstuffs in Bureaucratic Paralysis spiked recently, resulting in bread riots. Terrified government advisers have put forward economic plans to stabilize the economy.
"This cannot happen again," panics Minister of the Economy Alexander Gutenberg while wiring assets to an overseas bank. "We need to lower unemployment and control food prices if we want things to quiet down again. Major public works projects would ensure that the poor find good jobs and aren't just loafing around, stewing in their own juices. They could build bridges and beautify parks and organize public events. To be honest, what they work on doesn't matter; they could dig holes and fill them up again for all I care. The important thing is controlling poverty; food prices will eventually sort themselves out."
"The real problem is foreign control of our economy," concludes your Labor Minister, Stan Hernandez, while absentmindedly combing his beard. "Multinationals that don't care about Bureaucratic Paralysisians oversupply trivial things like fast food instead of investing in our critical national infrastructure. Only indicative planning can begin to properly direct the economy towards essential production while maintaining the profit motive. With the commanding heights under government control, we don't have to worry about capital flight the next time recession looms."
"What socialistic nonsense," retorts Finance Minister Sue-Ann Wilson, taking a break from scowling at jobless protesters. "That food price shock wasn't because of too little government meddling. The real cause was bad planning, a side-effect of half-baked subsidies. The market is smarter than a bunch of bureaucrats, so we should cut all subsidies propping up enterprises that don't turn a real profit. And if some people still can't find bread, then let them eat cake."
"Don't listen to that imperialist lackey," interrupts Aaron du Pont, a rioter throwing stale bread at you. "It's not enough to have national planning; we need WORLD economic planning. We should retool from making worthless fuzzy dice and sex-enhancement drugs and instead provide nutrition and medicines for needy peoples the world over. Perhaps you think the pig-dog capitalists will never let it happen, but I am hopeful. A rising dough lifts all nations, after all. It's time to end hunger once and for all."
I picked option 2. :)
I had that one today; I picked #3, of course!
There's a thread on the Got Issues? Forum that suggests that's not really what you wanted to do...
You'll have to link me--I didn't see it.
