Is it good or bad?

It's good. When your population grows bigger, it'll get better. :)

However, if you already have a large population, THEN it's bad... real bad.

Takusan - Wether it's good or bad depends on what your trying to achieve with your nation. If your trying to opress your citizens and make their lives a living nightmare, then a 'Basketcase' economy is good.

If your playing to try and trying to make a success out of your nation, then a Basketcase scenario is bad. It's a low form of economy.

For what it's worth, "Basket Case" is the second lowest Economic rating ("Imploded" being the lowest). If you want a crappy economy, good job! If you want a powerful economy, well... you've got some work to do...
