Hedge Fund

See Sure Gamble for similar review ;) This card is pretty much identical, and there is a great Pro/Con review under Sure Gamble. It is a staple economy card, and all economy Operations should be compared to it - 5 credits investment to make 4 credits profit.

Sweeps Week usually provides the same bonus, for only 1 investment but only certain times it can be used.

Successful Demonstration gives a 5 credit profit, for a 2 investment but the requirement that you stopped a run, which usually means either a) you're Jinteki: Replicating Perfection and they just jacked out of a central to run a remote, or you rezzed an ETR they couldn't break, which makes it a bit more difficult to fire.

Celebrity Gift is two clicks but gives a seven credit boost, (So six credit gain if you count that click as 1 credit) at the cost of revealing your secrets.

Beanstalk Royalties is 0 investment, but only 3 credits (but can help you get up to range for a Hedge Fund

Restructure is a whopping 10 credit investment, but does give you 5 in profit

You can see, all of the burst econ Operations give you 3-5 credits for a single click (the double of Celebrity gives you that 6th :P) but if you want more credits you either need a higher investment, or a situational trigger

Best econ card is Paywall Implementation in certain decks. Cost 0 and can net up to 10+ creds or discourage the runner from trashing your assets which is even better. —
