Hi, there is a CEO called American Express in my country who is inactive. I've sent numerous messages reminding him of the frequent supply shortage, which causes a drastic reduction of profit to my national treasury. Are there any ways which I can help solve the problem? Thank you!

Hahaha thanks for the joke :P
Actually I'm a bit worried for him since he always relies on borrowing to sustain his business...

If they're not public you could push taxes and lower their value some then bid on them. I have a problem with an inactive CEO however he has a public corporation and he still owns 96% of the shares. I can not bid on it, and buying shares are pointless because he owns most of them. How tragic.

Zen this's exactly the same case! TRAGIC! Now this has caused several billions of loss per month compared to the past!

Very sorry for your loss T_T. Mine has an unprofitable corp but it runs at full capacity. I think there should be an alternative option( because it's public, also I'm sure this was suggested before too lazy to dig through the forum for a link )to request a force move order giving the ceo a 1 game year notice to move his corporation, if he doesn't respond the game automatically moves it to a random c3. The ceo won't have to pay any compensation as you're making them move.( Just a thought ) In real life, a country has the ability to force any company out of their country. However this is a game( a damn good one at that tbh )and it's probably too much work to fiddle with an issue that probably effects less than 5% of players. Also I guess country size matters. The larger the country the smaller the effect. I have OCD when it comes to the smallest things for this game and tend to think too hard at simple tasks/issues. If however there is a way to counter this please share as I value your advice!

FWIW, I agree, Zen.
A country owner should have some means of kicking a recalcitrant enterprise out of his/her country. Although I also think there should be some consequence, such as having to pay some money or deal with unemployed labor for a few extra months.
It should not be without consequence. You don't want countries kicking enterprises out on a whim.

Perhaps, however most of the time when a ceo moves or closes a corporation they pay a small fee to the country. Remember, moving or building in a player controlled country is a privilege not a right. In my opinion, the CEO benefits much more then the owner of the country if tax is below 30% and they have good welfare. I do see where you're coming from. It's much cheaper to force a ceo out then bid him out, I'll agree on that one. The ceo would lose full production for a few months and has to deal with low welfare so I guess a small fee could be paid, but only small like 10-50B.

Zen and jdlech agree with what you both said. Instead of forcing out a CEO, is it possible to allow forced purchase of supplies which are under severe shortage by the country owner without the CEO's consent? For instance, after a game year of supply shortage the country owner can impose forced order of supplies until the CEO comes back and readjusts the corp contracts, etc.

Or he could have hundreds of corporations and not care enough to dig through all of them to see which single corp you are crying about.
Just putting that on the table and moving on.
