what if corporations like vacations, or cable tv, had an additional side effect of increasing your migration index, (or birth rates? lol)

Josias, You mean like if vacations also included casinos or those places with the girls and poles on stages and lots of 2 dollar bills being thrown on stage? Not that I know anything about such places. Just saying.

well, i was thinking side effects. when i was young, growing up in an area with allot of potato fields, the workers where given a 20 lb bag a week, (in addition to their pay,) we never bought potatoes.

if a country has few iron mining corps, wouldn't that mean that local steal corps would get cheap materials, do to lower transportation costs?

of course you can ship anything all over the world, but the easier it is to get something some where, the cheaper. this is similar to the promised "Country resources," but not the same.

but like with cable TV, how many people move to NY or LA to pursue an acting career? wouldn't a country with allot of successful entertainment also attract workers? increasing the migration index and depending, the birthrate?

further, wouldn't mining lead increase disability rates? mining uranium? coal? these things are necessary, and large deposits can make a local population rich, and provide cheap resources to the rest of the country, but also create health problems?

Great, but what would be the drawback?

Would a corporation that increases lifespan cause widespread boredom?
Or could a "2 dollar bill" corporation cause an increased birthrate while reducing the productivity of female citizens due to unhappy marriages?

well, aside from the sillyness, wouldn't increased boredom also increase the demand for entertainment, shows, sports, vacations, telephone, internet, software, computers, household goods, cable tv, and food? possibly creating health problems do to over eating and depression?

and why would increased birthrates make females unhappy? thats a bit of an assumption, isn't it? but to follow, unwanted children tend to grow into criminals, so an increased birth rate, in your scenario would increase Government costs, (law enforcement, and corruption?)

I meant to point out that wives generally don't like their husbands going to strip clubs and thus would become unhappy. The strippers might have large numbers of unwanted babies.

Either way this is a good idea. To properly implement it though, we'd have to spend time trying to figure out pros/cons for every product and ensure that nothing goes out of balance.
