Issue 41.

Okay this is the issue with the software company "Microcosm" under charges of violation of anti-trust laws. When I received this issue I tried to pick the option that most reflected my personal beliefs. I believe that large companies such as "Microcosm" are occasionally guilty of dodgy business practices and that without competition you get stagnation and so on. So looking at the options I found that option 2 most closely fitted my personal beliefs. Okay it is a bit hyperbolic, "Microcosm must be shut down immediately," and all the rest, but all the options in Nation States are over the top so I didn't think it would have that much of an effect. So I was a bit put out to see that with this one issue alone I went from a 'very strong' economy to a 'good' economy.

Essentially I'm wondering if anyone else had this issue and picked option one, supporting Microcosm. Does this option have equally bad consequences?
