My desire was/is to raise production levels.

With these stats i have raised it to 115%:
govt. salaries:100%
corp salaries:300%
edu: 113.45
health: 121
social: 102
trans: 119

With an edu. @ 113.45 i seem to generate sufficent quantities of required specialities without breaking the bank and, at this point i am not seeing much of a real return for my increased spending,if any, for the costs incurred to raise my production levels from 107 to

Question: am i at the "break even" point? I ask because i have read people suggesting a need for much higher levels, and i am failing to see the justification.

Production Level from 107 to 115 => Revenue and Raw Materials cost increased 115/107 in all corps, which if your corporations are doing well mean an even greater ratio of an increase in profit.

The first purpose is to raise welfare, which is what increases production. If you can get welfare above 120, you should be doing good enough. To do this, you'll want Education, Health, and Transportation at around 130.

HOWEVER... the part where you're missing the point is assuming that the actual reason for suggesting high edu index beyond 130 has anything to do with production percentage. I'd venture to guess that if 113 is sufficient, you're not bothering to upgrade effectivity in your corporations, which means you have fewer corporations than would otherwise fit in the country if effectivity in all were to be fully upgraded. Like 115% of 20 is less than 115% of 30. The effectivity upgrades result in fewer total workers, but more educated workers staffing each corporation.

Sorry i forgot to add corp. effectivity and quality levels are at or very close to 200%.

So... you already understand the rationale and the problem is that you don't trust your own judgement. Sorry, bro. I can't help you there.

double your govt salaries. It would increase welfare and if your paying govt too little, they might up and leave to work in the private sector, closing your hospitals and schools.
