I'm neither of those people, but...

Close some corporations, buy some people, or educate some workers, having less than 100% hiring in your corporations hurts profits. As an example, 2 corporations at 50% hiring essentially doubles fixed costs and maintenance products used in comparison to 1 corporation at 100% hiring.

You want to maximize welfare index as well to increase production and thereby increase corporation profit. It doesn't work exactly like this anymore, but the general idea is that it will be limited by the minimum value of a set of indexes: The minimum indexes should be around 130 Education, 130 Health, 130 Transportation, 120 Social Security (~90% payments), 90 Employment Index, and 100 Supply Index (don't have shortages of any products your country uses, each product decreases this by 10 points). There is little point in improving indexes past this (in terms of costs to revenues), aside from the education index which will possibly improve the number of educated professionals in the country. The quality of products your country uses does play a role as well, but it is a very small factor and not worth improving this portion in terms of costs to benefits... 120 Q for these products is best. Higher production improves both profits and revenues so you benefit from higher country resource payments as well as state corp earnings.

Other than that do research on ways to take advantage of average supply quality. The basic idea of this is that the quality of the final product is influenced by the average of the number (not cost) of raw materials... of which some products are cheaper and used in greater amounts.

I have a really good infrastructure, some of my corps are doing really well. While others I am not closing because I don't want to build them again and give flexibility of utility in my economy so all have jobs.

So to increase market cap, I should increase quality?

I would generally agree with Mizore's analysis accept I do see a reasonable swing in welfare past ed, and health upto maybe 145-155 and relatively no difference in moving SS from ~130 to 102. I am limited though as I try to find a scheme and send all my countries through it, so... I don't have exact numbers but I did test the results recently of salary effects and SS so I do think it is unnecessary to keep SS that high.

Anywho Kingofc I've been meaning to check out your country but I've been a bit busy and I got to go back to China tomorrow on business so I'm going to look at it now for ya.

Thanks Drew and Mizore. I look forward to your further research on my countries situation. It is very much appreciated.

If you have under 100% hiring in any of your corps then that is the very first thing you should sort out.

Most of those corps you are listing should not be making losses, (maybe software and gasoline as they can be a bit tempermental), unless they are one off loses and most months they make good profit. If they are at 100% hiring and making losses then chances are you have your selling strategy set too high.

Thanks Crafty, you are always great help. I will follow your guidelines. I recently made IPO for one of my corps. just to see how it would feel, to sell stocks. but now i regret it since so much money is going to other countries, what should I do buy it back? could you please buy it, the corp is called STONES STONES STONES STONES, and it has a market cap of 700+B and a good profit too, but I want a friend CEO to own it.

Who now controls the corp? Like who has the majority of shares not including investment funds? If its another CEO then you are best leaving it as it is, the corp will be paying you quite a lot in country resources used.

If it's still you, well, you did get the money for selling those shares. If you want to wrestle the shares back I would set my portfolio target for that corp to 100% and eventually your country (corp) will buy the shares back. There are quicker ways but it may be expensive if the corp is worth 700B, it's value will probably shoot up as you create a demand for the shares.

I just, lowered my hiring and production levels down to 10%, thus lowering the stock price, and I am now buying back the stocks.

I'll PM you I more questions.
