    After reading http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?p=9692207#post9692207 I had this fought

    Not every city has a stock exchange (a lot of countries don’t have their own) so I was thinking should be stock exchange building with a national wonder (I think civ 5 still has them)
    That gives

    +33% :gold: in all cities

    And

    When you are making more than 10gold profit
    +10% :gold: in all cities
    +1 :) per city
    +1 :hammers: in all cities

    When you are making between -5 and +9
    +0% :gold: in all cities
    +0 :) per city
    +0 :hammers: in all cities

    When you are making between -6 and lower
    -10% :gold: in all cities
    -1 :) per city
    -1 :hammers: in all cities



    Any one got any thoughts or ideas?

    oooh, that does make it interesting, although it would make it next to impossible to get out of recession, imagine if you're at -5, knowing that you're about to drop to -6 and then all of a sudden your stock exchange causes you to drop to -20, over 10 :( and you can't build any entertainment.

    I think its a good idea but not a fun one, and Civ is supposed to be a fun game, you have to try and avoid anything that makes the strong too much stronger or the weak weaker.

    Also, some countries have more than one stock exchange... at least the US does.

    Some countries do have 2 but it’s not the norm
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_stock_exchanges

    But you make a good point of how would you get out of Recession

    Spend your gold reserve
    Cut spending
    Raise taxes (wait we can’t do this one in civ 5 :( )

    Also if the stock exchange worked like this and I did not think my economy could stay in the black I would not build it

    It's like the real stock market you’re taking a risk and betting on the ability of your economy to grow

    how about a World Bank Wonder. Which allows you to run a deficit or make interest off reserves or something.
