you mean you lose cash?

If so, that appears to be normal.

In any case you should see cash flow and profit as two different departments.

Cash dips when you buy materials or weapon.

Profit has to do with the difference between what the state earns in taxes etc. and what it spends on running the nation.

Buying new, flashy choppers for example, belongs to the cash flow, but not the state budget (except for the following maintenance of the choppers).

Interesting. Well, then it's just the other way around then.

You get money from some selling, but your running balance is negative.

I can't come it any closer unless you quote your finance tables here.

There are problems in this country.

You need to fix education settings quickly to increase hiring in corporations.
once you do it, you will also be able to add 5 or more corporations. (your employment is at 66%).
also, you must improve your education and health as the welfare index is 80 and production in your corporations suffers.

the corporations will do much better if you decrease the raw materials quality to 150 or 170 where it was before and make sure all corporations have that setting.

Your cash is now increasing as you have low cash and purchasing has stopped.

You are also not upgrading your corporations at all, in both countries and as a result, they will not produce any profit to fix your economy.

The beginners settings were much better for the country and kept it profitable. you may turn automation on again. It will help you solve some of the problems.

Let me ask you this, after reading above, I see that cash, and profit are two different things, but if you are making profit, and your cash is dropping, does this mean that you are spending more than your profit? otherwise the cash would be raising? is there a place to see where the spending is going? other than the profit & loss statement?

Yes Tony, the cash is usually dissapearing to pay for country resources or to cash transfers to corporations.

Increasing government salaries above 150-200 will help them pay for resources consumed, and looking after your corps health will stop them needing transfers
