Corporate debt does not need to be checked every day. It is easy to move money into corporations, all at once and give them enough to keep them out of debt for weeks.
Salary reductions kick in if the salaries are more than twice the salaries government pays.
After the reduction, if the corporation is in a good shape, previous targets are resumed and salary will increase back to whatever the target was.
If reductions helped, you can also change the targets to something that can be sustained.
If salary reductions do not help and the corporation is making losses, it is probably the market price.
Some corporations cannot be saved and you can better close them and start ones with major shortages on the market.
Factory maintenance needs at least 500 new corporations in each world. This is true for now and may change if you all start building them. There are more such products and very large shortages in many products in all worlds.
The price definitely depends on shortages and surpluses. We do not manipulate or change pricing.
There are limits. With top quality and long time shortages, the price can reach more than 6 times the "base" price or go down to one fifth of base price.
High salaries do increase productivity but it is not linear.
It can pay back if the product price and quality are good. Personally, I don't believe in extreme salaries because when the product price dives, the corporation is stuck with huge salary cost and can easily bankrupt.
