I has a 10 once as England, the score then dropped back down but I believe Richard changed some underlying factors in the economy. I was in a position then to afford whatever I wanted then, the key thing I did was set up what was termed the golden triangle of trade in the eighteenth century - slaves from Africa to American colonies - raw materials from American colonies to England - manufactured goods to Africa to pay for slaves.
Probably unethical. I think the trick is to do what worked in the eighteenth, so in game 8 I am currently playing as the Tatars and so I am going for slave raiding in the Ukraine. However, to be honest this hasnt helped my economy but I do have a load of slaves now.

Did once hit 8 too but that was as England and I think that position has an inbuilt trade advantage in the game?

Yes, in the rules it specifically calls out England and the UDP as having a built in trade advantage to mimic history.

I have hit 10 before - I think it was as Turkey - I guess through a combination of economic boom plus specific policies and infrastructure improvements over a number of months. It certainly doesn't provide double the tax revenue over the course of a year though - Richard scales it down a little to make it more realistic. I think trade probably benefits more (and helpfully it of course also helps people who trade with you, as your region is a bigger / more profitable market for their goods). Always useful to find out which regions are expanding vs in recession when you are making trade investment decisions each year - an obvious point but easily overlooked.

As Turkey? I think that's quite impressive!

It was in LGDR 1 a long time ago - I united the whole Ottoman Empire under a single rule (Sultan Siyus) then had to drop out :-(

I have had a EH of 10 for about 24 consecutive turns in one of my positions. I have been counting my lucky stars

I just checked. The Russian Economy hit 10 for the first time in August 1702. It is now November 1705 and it hasnt budged. I honestly cant offer any insight into what on earth is going right, because in my other positions the EH can only be described as failing.....miserably.

I managed with Prussia in Game 1 to get upto ten as well I dropped taxes to 0 on everyone. I also received a lot of economic support froma friendly Turkey( yes the same as above) So I guess it was a more cosmetic than long lasting result.
