>>61370013> Shadowrun's corporate aspect has some of the most retarded application of jurisprudence in world building I've ever encountered
Shadowrun is retarded only in a sense that corporations artificially restrict their influence and remain separate from nations.> government happens to be sort of interested in "overall economy of the society"
You do realize that there is no "government", only specific individuals? And there is literally no individuals who are personally interested in the "overall economy of the society"? Unless we are talking about Cuba/USSR/DPRK or the like.
I.e. while government is supposed to be interested, there is no mechanism to actually make it.> they seriously tend to get voted or revolution'd out of the office should things go FUBAR
Very few nations have a sufficiently credible threat of revolution for politicians to be motivated by it. Even if there is threat, there are ... alternative solutions, those that do not include "overall economy of the society" as a factor.> unlike private enterprises they can't just withdraw their actives and set up shop elsewhere
Please, stop thinking about gods and spirits and other abstract entities that do not exist IRL (like "government").
There are only specific people. And specific people can easily retire. Even few years can be very lucrative for sufficiently corrupt politicians in a nation where anything could be done under the guise of "suppressing revolution".> but are extremely unlikely to allow it to collapse an industry just for the grease
Do you live under the rock? Germany recently butchered their nuclear industry "just for the grease" (they replaced state-owned nuclear power plants with "green" and privately-owned - profits from the state-sponsored projects are already immense and will only grow, as the price of electricity skyrockets).
