...As discussed in other threads in this forum, markup is best used not to create profit but to control demand. Low markup causes demand to persist [and low domestic prices also cause immigration to rise, fueiling more demand], and you will find yourself building endless amounts of production resources to meet that demand. Tweak this off with domestic markup. Use your domestic sales profits to finance building self-sufficiency capacities. [Yes, your populace will squeal - you may need to buy additional amounts on the WM until you near self-sufficiency].

search this forum also for discussions of efficiency investment, which works in concert with markup. most of what you seek has already been discussed.
Colorless green ideas sleep furiously [but otherwise, they do not worry and are happy].
