never go above 36%
In theory, you can print money 24 times a year, for a income of 12.000.000$ (average money print after first year yields about 500.000$). It will bring you an inflation of about 96%. Without printing, you could raise twice from bonds, twice from taxes and a minor income from towns (30-60$ per turn), minor form brigs (0-40$ per turn from brigs).
The bonds and taxes can give you 2*700.000+2*700.000 = 2.800.000$.
So at the end of the year you could have 4 times as much money, and everything would be 100% more expensive. Conclusion is , inflation is not punishing enough, and in PBEM's players tend to put limit on money printing.
The CSA has less money as it did historically, you should learn to cope with it, build some brigs, print little money now and then, but dont industrialize, you wont get a ROI until 64, when the war will be probably over.
Remember, a division in 61 is worth more than division in 64.
