The status bar appears at the bottom of the screen while viewing any estate map; it shows an overview of your economy and police relations.
The majority of the status bar focusses on your economy:
- Money: $ Dirty and $$ Clean
- Storage (if you run out of space you'll be forced to do a Fire Sale)
- Ratings: Liked and Feared
You can get additional information about your economy from the Economy Overview screen.
If the heat gets too high an Investigation will start, potentially leading to your arrest and losing the game.
