So I pissed away the last of my money reducing dissent, it's Feb '40...and now my economy is screwed. I need the money to pay for the redundant trades (which I am incapable of cancelling, for some reason), so my production is at about 60% of what it should be. I can't see any way to get money in future, and there's no way of cancelling any of these stupid agreements. Is my game dead?
I'm playing as Germany btw.
cancelling trade deals is a diplomatic action, and thus in fact NEEDS money to be executed. You should try to stop or at least chop down production, and get some IC on Consumer goods instead to make money. Once you hit a certain amount (differs depending on foreign affairs minister) of money, you'll be able to cancel the deal. Afterwards, get back to doing what you intended.
First thing, there is no reason to ever trade money for resources. Supplies works better always, so make sure you set the AI to not trade away money. Secondly, trade with US early game for extra money stockpile. Not much you can really do now, though. There is a decision that could help you, war bonds, not sure on the details of the requirements, though

But I think there should be more ways to actually use money. AoD system is extremely nice. If you have lots of money you can put the slider on zero and live with savings and put that to production. What I really want from AoD to DH is the more advanced economic system. DH system is very naive. I mean, already the fact that it costs as much to build national infrastructure for Nepal than Germany
