    How to build factories

    I Just started a game as portugal and my capitalists dont have any factories being build because they arent earning much money and they arent earning much money because they arent getting any income from factorys



    Any way to get around this?
    My current AAR`s

    Well, you could try getting new Capies...
    Basically, get your Middle Class rich by lowering taxes, then lower the tax on the Rich class so it's more profitable for the Middle classes to promote to Capies

    Mind you, I'm no expert, but that's what I gather should work.. Having the Rich class with 0% tax and 0% tariff should also help, and even going -% tariff to help them buy stuff easier

    You can try subsidizing single factories or the whole economy through tariffs.

    Well i did one thing, i chnged the ruling poarty to reactonary (i think) and started building on my own!


    It hurted my economy at first but when they where finished i had such a boom in my economy that i started building trains all over the place


    My first factory was a cement factory and at times it has over 30~40 of profit!!!


    For the past months i have had a good profit every month and i have all slider at max in expense and only poor people pay taxes , depite this some stioll get luxury needs so, yay for me



    Althogh now i have a huge treasuary and a huge national bank(over 30k just from sao tomé let alone the reast that ammount to a grande total of 65k)


    Still i have a few question (first time playing any victoria game for that manner) so forgive if these are a bit of a noobish thingy :P

    What does literacy do exactly? I know it speeds research but how so?


    What do artisans do?


    What do aristocrats do?


    So i need more population, any way to increase people that you would recomend?



    Do pops first sell their good on the national trade, then sphere of influence and the wolrd market?


    Now that i have a huge treasuary and a huge national bank, would u recommend building up factories even more? I still need population and expecially craftsman so a good idea would be to use national focus to promote them?



    How many national focus can one use at the same time?



    Does your home contry get any immigrattion from outside or from your colonys?



    If i buy an upgrade, that money u pay upfront where does it go to?


    If i have further questions ill ask, and thanks for all the help! MY economy is more or less going in its way but i have a huge treasuary that cant be used because of the low population

    Low tariffs and taxes allow for more of your POPs to deposit savings in the bank and thus allow the capitalists to use that as capital to start a project. You're best to have low taxes and tariffs if you want them to build, as it allows them to have more money to invest.

    Increasing their number can also help: National Focus more capitalists. Of course, having a higher administration efficiency will speed up promotion to all sorts of other types of POPs, so maybe start off with NF-ing bureaucrats to bump up the administration efficiency whilst your capitalists slowly build up their revenue.
