There is an error. Germany's income should be 14,888,000, and should be at Stagnating.
British Empire: Very High Taxes, combined with few economic assets, has decimated domestic production and exports, causing rapid inflation. The Ministry of the Interior strongly suggests investing in constructing industrial, agricultural, commercial, and financial centers. These are in high demand by the local populace.
German Empire: Lackluster performance in the stock market caused a major crash in the Berlin Stock Exchange. In what is being called "Black Tuesday," a large number of investment bubbles burst as a number of financial loans were revealed to be in default. The reverberations within the German economy are intense. Further, political instability within the German Reich has contributed to serious instability.
United States of America: Very Low Taxes, combined with a very friendly business atmosphere, and a Public Works project aimed at the American Midwest have contributed to a very serious rise in American Standards of living. The Federal Government has responded to the Dust Bowl crisis by renovating Midwestern Agricultural Centers (4). Further, speculation has gone wild as a number of large deposits of Oil were discovered in California, Wyoming, Montana and Nevada (4). Further, the rise of financial giants in New York City, such as Goldman Sachs and Herschel & Sons and the Liewbowitz Brothers have contributed substantially to the rise in investment banking (2). These investments have paid off, as the ports of Boston and Atlantic City were renovated to accommodate new Atlantic Trade.
Portugal: Heavy deficit spending, along with high taxes, and the ominious threat of war have sent prices and interest rates skyrocketing. The Portuguese government is experiencing record numbers of inflation, and as numerous business are evacuating Lisbon and its surrounding areas, the situation for the Portuguese government looks grim.
People need to input their trade routes in the Spreadsheets. Check the Trade tab in the NA 4 Doc. I do not have a full list of all trading partners, so people must report their own trade agreements in order for it to be counted! I accomplished most of the CSA, British, and Russian trade routes before 12:30 AM when I called it quits.
