: I had a play, got a huge boom economy in which every family bar the unemployed one was better off. The large income families got hundreds more!

Did you get a big crash ten years down the line? What I usually get after my uber-booms...usually as well, I end up with negative unemployment and negative inflation (occaisonally negative interest rates as well), but thats just the way teh formulas work...

: Odd that when I turned it round to a 'caring' tax and handout regime I made the unemployed families marginally better off while stripping hundreds from everyone else! Leaving them just enough for a one way ticket elsewhere no doubt.

Slash the lower tax bands (make everything say under 8K p.a. tax free), knock child benefit up (especially the first child bonus), end the married couples allowance, remove the cieling on NI- usually all gets some good results...
