Have less hospitals thats the only way (and lower government salaries). You can't control government cost, but the cost correlates with your countries revenue and population (and empire size). Social security stops civil unrest in high performing economies, and oh so slightly increase corporation productivity. That is all it does.

Thank's.Then I think I got the answer too.Low social security brings down the cost's.Have halve of the hospital's and lower down the government salarie's to 100% mark.Although that should not effect the country's economie's,if they play it correctly.The social security should not bring down the production levels aswell,aslong as the welfare of the corporation salarie's stay's high above 80% mark to keep the people motivated.I think I worked it out.Thank's again.

Errr, lets know how you get on...
I think poor health index (too few hosp's) = low welfare = low production etc. and high death rate/low birth rate = low population growth/migration = less profit potential. But I know jack, I just tend to look at the hints and documentation and read the forums when bored.

Social security payments will not effect health costs, it would have been decreasing hospital numbers and/or government salaries that decrease health cost.
You don't need good welfare index as long as your finance index is lower then 180. Having high health index is worth the extra population growth though, and decreasing government salaries too much will effect corporate salaries (corporate salaries are only allowed to be double the government salary I think). Effecting all corporations production in your countries, which in turn is likely to effect your economy.
Try to think things down the lines, not just the short term (like a lot of politicians).

Your health index is also part of the requirement for level advancement, all those lovely shiny gold coins

you could also mess around with budget settings, like for example, say you have a health index of 200, drop budget to 75%, and your index drops, without destruction of hospitals (which you will need, if you ever plan on adding pop, or playing for a while). You can always up the budget later on, and since there's no "maintenance" of buildings per se (that I can find), having a hospital run at 10%, and then run at 100% makes no difference to the actual state of the hospital - what I'm saying is, in case I've got it wrong - is that if you neglect your health department for a while, you will not incur costs (other than what is the base line required) at a later time, when you decide to re-use them. Just make sure you have enough staff to be at each hospital - cuz no staff == no hospital.

Budget does nothing. Thought it did something until recently. Set everything to 0 and nothing changed.

Oh really? damn. I never messed with the thing, cuz it said, once you set, you'll have to do it yourself from now on.
Although there is that "automatic setting of country budget" in automation check box.
I'm actually going to take a slave, and see what happens. Will keep you guys updated

When you lower your Gov Sal too much your corps will fail to hire workers and will lay off others. I have been have trouble with coming back from that. Gov Sal is like a limit to all corps and if it is too low then your corps will lower theirs and then they will lay off workers.

Thanks people!It's best to keep the Government salaries low as possible just before the hire starts to decrease,so there for you don't loose any people in the corps.and that will bring down the cost and increase the income for the country.just muck around a bit till you figure it out.
