Keeping Black Market Low

Postby Bill Clinton the Cold Warrior » Sun Dec 03, 2023 9:22 pm

Is there some way to permanently keep the black market statistic on your nation down? Obviously, you can choose the option on issues that cracks down on crime, but it always grows again the next day. Is there any way to permanently get it to 0?

The Black Market statistic is a percentage of your GDP (economic output stat), which is tied to population. As population is always increasing, so does economic output, and thus the black market will always rise. To get it to 0 you need to reduce the % share the black market has on the economy (you can check this on the economy tab on your nations page) to 0, which I'm not sure is possible.

Glad to assist a fellow nation named after a former US president!

I have 0 black market, but, maybe that's just a consequence of my planned economy?

Economies that are more planned seem not to have black market, as I do not have it either.
