Welfare minimum task issue

The consequence of the second option of this task doesn't make sense. The option states that the negative income tax has done harm to business, thus, the man argues for a lowering of corporate taxes in order to better pay employees and fire those who don't do what the boss demands of them. In doesn't make any reference to cancelling/lowering welfare. Yet, the consequence of the option says that "welfare can be canceled in favor of reducing company taxes." In the previous quarter, Juni had 0 people who died of starvation, this quarter after choosing that option, I have over 100 dead of starvation. Heuls24x19Heuls24x19Heuls24x19 Either the description changes to include the logic behind its consequence, or the consequence needs to change. And frankly, what does corporate tax have to do with the amount of welfare? The NIT secures a better deal for low income earners, while still maintaining that those who are in need of welfare, will still be provided for.

RE: Welfare minimum task issue

Yeah sorry, the translator missed to mention the reduced welfare - he did put it into the description of the effect. Which is of course much worse than the original, because the regent is not likely to see the effect description (in some other state) before he choses the task option.

Loose translation is a general issue among older tasks. At the moment I do translation all by myself, making sure it's close to the original. In case we ever hire translators again, we will need close inspections of their work, I guess... I fixed this task option.

EDIT: In case you want some reset by 4 quarters, just say so.

I understand. ^^ It's good to know that it's just a minor thing. Actually, I would like a reset, that way I'll be in the same year with Richard, and we could equalize the competition. Thanks, Sheep. Daumenhoch
