Well there may be some heavy flaws within my logic but I was thinking.
If I wanted to make more profit from the same volume of material, the price would need to go up.
If there was less of a material of on the market, there would be more demand than supply, which means the price would go up. (I assume)
Therefore, there needs to be much less supply for very large demands on a product. To decrease supply, one could destroy individual corporations.
If I wanted my Steel corporation to be more profitable, there needs to be less competition for it. Since I don't want to declare war on my neighbors in order to destroy one corporation, I'll just hit those in the C3s.
I assume of the 350 steel corps in Kebir Blue, 10 are public, and estimated 100 are in presidented countires. The remaining 240 or less would be in C3s then. That would mean that the surplus will be dramatically negative, which could mean more profit per unit.
But theoretically speaking: Those 350 Steel corporations provide the material for the war industries, and some other corporations, which total 9680 Corps affected. Therefore, I would indeed screw my world's economy if I were to do so.

I would just close my corps that are not making any money and open ones that do. Keep it simple.

My warped opinion:
Use a cash rich CEO to buy all C3 producing competition then close the ones without visible profit. If you have been playing long enough you could try hostile takeovers for the Player Owned corps while your at it.

Since most of the corps in my country are CEOed, I don't want to piss anyone off by hostile biÄ‘ding. And being human, I wanted to increase my coffers tenfold, from either of my two public corporations. Steel is pretty profitable, averaging 30B profit per year, I heard it could be in the 50B per year. Hence resulted in this conclusion.
P.S. Well this is just in theory, and I have nearly no intent of destroying other corporations. This is a joke.

Buying corporations that you intend to close makes no sense when you can just buy a profitable corporation of some kind and keep it instead.
Any supply shortfalls that you could create this way would be of very minor benefit to you. The price of stuff in this game fluctuates between a lower and upper bound. Even if you had the only steel corporation in the world, the price would only go so high.

Does this not contradict the laws of supply and demand?
