Hypothetical Question:

Post by Covenant on Wed Mar 09, 2016 4:28 pm

If there is a new alliance with around 30 members all under 600 score, would that alliance be justified if they charged a 60% resource tax and 10% income tax for vague answers like "Growth reasons"?

I always subscribed to the idea that an alliance should have very little taxes so that the smaller nations could grow faster and in turn bring in more money for the alliance. Is this a wrong way of thinking?

It depends on the situation and personal philosophy. A counter-argument is that higher taxes means more money in the bank which can be re-distributed.

Having nations grow also takes a while, and that's only if they stick with the alliance. That being said, it's something that has to be explained to the members and this works only if the members get something back.

I suppose I wouldn't have a problem with it if the funds were watched closely, and not just distributed whenever for whatever. I personally wouldnt like needing to have double the resource improvements to cover the tax. I think it would interfere by taking up improvements that would be better used for commerce and military units.

If done right, and you have some high revenue earners propping up the system it could work, but In my opinion its very hard to pull off when everyone is low revenue.

In my mind there is 2 schools of thought here: the individualistic way with low taxes for war-aids loans and other stuff- depending on high tier nations that never-ever loan much and pay into the system almost always. And there is the NPO-style socialist thing with 100%tax that pretty much rewards activity and makes even inactives a important source of cash while lowering the risks of getting raided.
Anything between will not work as well as the two ends of the spectrum when done right. Which of them is better hard to say I guess it depends on the AA i question.
