I used to be a top 50 country on White Giant with 10T in credit and slowly strengthening my position. I had a hiatus on the game for a couple of months and when I came back (February), nearly all my money had gone and things were looking bad. Since then, I have been unable to get positive cash flow. I have reduced my government spend as much as possible.....cutting hospitals, schools and education and increased corporations. However, I still can't get a positive cash flow. I have 120B of loans still to pay on several corporations but surely this can't be the only reason??? I have no army to speak of and no matter what cuts I make, it just ain't happening.
If anyone could offer any assistance on this matter, I would be grateful.

3 months is a long time to leave the country and things can get very bad.
I advise you to first check your education.
(departments --> education --> education priorities).
make sure there are some unemployed in all groups. Check if there are workers needed for 100% employment in all your corporations.
check your indexes and mainly your welfare index. It has a crucial influence on your production levels and profitability.
I assume you now get advice messages.
follow all of them and it will help you fix the economy.
you can also check the "Now What" red link on the country page.
it will show you where you have problems.
It is now easier to balance the economy than it used to be and most countries make a profit.
follow this advice and you will reach profitability but depending on how bad it is, it can take some time.

Yep. In my experience, cutting education and health is only going to make things worse as you run short of hi-tech workers and the welfare suffers.

I've been trying to put things right since february, not left the game since February. I had left everything as it was for the last three months but had to make cuts recently to try and stem the negative cash flow. I see that these cuts may have been the wrong approach. Any further assistance will be useful.
Thanx for the tips guys.

Read the advice I gave to falcien in the thread "Allied States Of Mindress. Economic Recovery Help.". It's exactly what you need if your country is struggling economically.
