Best Corporation performance index?

Topics: Little Upsilon: Best Corporation performance index?

I seem to have a hit a wall at 122% no matter which index I look at it, it seems to be higher than that but corporations won't produce more than 122% unless I raise wages drastically.

From what I've seen though raising wages doesn't pay for itself. The corporation spends more in increased wages than it gets back in extra profits thereby defeating the purpose of raising wages to get more production.

Am i missing something?

High wages used to be beneficial. I remember running wages as high as 1500%. I find for state corporations you can maximize profit at 200% wages. For CEO I wouldn't run it that low as you will have trouble keeping workers employed since most countries are poorly managed. I run 300% on my CEO. Another way to increase production percentage is to build your corporations in countries with high welfare index.

State corporation wages at 200%? Isn't that a bit too low?
Because if my observations are right, the higher the wages are, the more income taxes you can collect from people and the more money the people can use to spend on as well as to invest on.

Right now I am running my state corporations at 410% salaries while my CEO corps runs at 420%.

And I place profit sharing and taxes at 0% and I only take lumpsums.

Have a nice day to you all,
The President of the Asian Empire on LU.

Check what your profits are at 410%. My state corps at 200% net around 1.2 billion per month. I tested a range of different salaries from 100 all the way to 500 and I found I got the best profit at 200%. Another side benefit of having state at 200% is that all the CEOs in your country will pretty much be guaranteed 100% employment if their salaries are 300, so they will be happy. Any worker shortages will affect your state corps so you need to manage your country well.

I only do 200% on state corps because I know I can ensure 100% hiring by managing my countries well. For CEO I have to run higher because most players run higher than 200 so you will never have full employment at those levels.

Try changing one of your corps to 200% and see how it goes for you.

Well, not all though but some of my corps makes 1.2 Billion, sometimes 1.5 Billion at 410%.

I did try a few years ago back then with a different account and I found that Population income tax are comparably lower than with higher wages. However, I don't know much other than that. Everytime I play this game, I usually do 0% Profit sharing and aside from that, I only do lumpsums.
