"Economy Growth" has no effect on economic growth

Recommended Posts

I have been doing a bunch of tests on the economic system in order to figure out how things work and how best to increase a nation's wealth.

In the Budget screen, I set "Investments" to 100% and monitored the Economy levels and income growth of my country for 5 turns.  I then spent 20 un-used Tech Points and put them all in "Economic Growth".  The results of a +15% increase to Economic growth?

  • Rate of Economy growth: unchanged*
  • Cost of investing directly in a Province's Economy: unchanged
  • Rate of Development growth: unchanged (Curiously, the development growth rate correlates EXACTLY with the "Province Growth Rate", which I would think should affect population not development...)

Putting tech points into "Economic Growth" seems to have absolutely no effect whatsoever

I think you have a bug.**

*Update: I did further testing to try to factor out the high randomness of Econ construction (Varying from +150 to +250 on any given turn with similar funding), and it appears that there WAS in fact a 15% increase in Econ growth.  I apologize for the incorrect report.  Randomness makes finding bugs hard!

**I'm still not convinced that everything with "Investment" is working properly, so I'll keep checking things.

      I was creating a map of Italy and I noticed a problem. The provinces I created have pratically no population and no economy. How can it be possible that Rome have 488 inhabitants and 300 of economy... even in the Middle Ages it was not so low. How can I fix this?

      Nie mam pojęcia czy wy też tak macie, ale jak gram jakimś sobie krajem, i nadchodzi kilkusetna tura (nie gram world conquest), patrze na ekonomie panstw na świecie, to widzę głównie u tych małych krajów (1-2 prowincje) ze maja po 200k ekonomi. Jak to jest możliwe?! Te kraje wydają cały hajs na właśnie powiększanie ekonomii, czy co? To jest irytujące, bo nie łatwo podbić tego małego potwora pomijając że z realizmem nie ma to nic wspólnego. Łukasz powinien zrobić zrobić jakiś update poprawiający tego typu błędy.

      You can increase economy of a province "very quickly"... just investing on it. But what about increase population on a province? Does it exist any way to do it? Thank you very much.

      I can't figure out what investing in the development of a province actually accomplishes.  It has no noticeable effect on Tax income, nor on Production income.  You can invest thousands of gold into a province but not, as far as I can tell, actually gain anything from it except a slight increase in Administrative costs.
      Is there some important game mechanic I'm missing here?  What does the "Development" level of a province do?
