Let a country be able to do foreign investment and build up economic facilities (factories, farms, mines, etc) in other countries. This would be done through the diplomatic relations screen and the raw materials and money required for the build would come from the offering country while the labor would come from the receiving country.
A typical trade could look like this.
Offered: Coal Mine
Received: 50% (whatever that number is) of the coal produced perpetually.
In this way poor countries could open up to foreign investment. Lower their unemployment and gain some needed ressources
Rich countries could increase their available resources while at maximum employment.
This type of trade would also forge much neede alliances between rich and poor countries and make the diplomacy part of game more interesting.
well i support phoenix suggestion and idea, sounds so .... reality.
many times i found that i need a product, i'm short of it, the country near my borders have interesting potentiality but doesn't build so ... to reach my needs i invade whole enemy country
and take territory and build but here come's the efficence and loyalty factor.
in this way i can:
- stay in peace with the others
- reach my economic needs in a pacific way
- develop trade with other country
- supply my industry
nice idea phoenix
i add an other idea
- maps and scenario based maps that have 5km hex dimension ... how sound this? expecially in europe could be more interesting!
