Like TomPhil, my biggest complaint against Dem2 at the moment is the lack of difficultly over the long term (past your first election.)
I spend a few hours this morning trying to fix that with an inflation mod.
What this mod does, is, as your GDP and the percentage of higher incomes in your society goes up, the following goes down (due to increased inflation.)
Support from the wealthy and capitalists (They don’t like it that there hard-earned money is worth less)
Support from everyone (They don’t like the news)
And, the following is affected:
Working Week (People have to work more to make up for the weaker currency)
International Trade (Goes down-other countries would rather trade with countries with a better currency)
Average Income (Goes up, as people get more money)
With most countries, the inflation rate is quite stable when you start out (meaning support from capitalists and the wealthy-and a positive boost to international trade.)
But, as your GDP goes up (as most people try to do) you have those other effects to deal with.
Now, for the bad stuff.
I strongly recommend backing up your stimulation.csv file as this mod changes it a lot.
Also, at the moment, this mod is still a beta. I’m confident that it is stable enough to release to the Dem2 public, but there still may be some balancing issues-most have been fixed with this update, but some are still bound to be around.
If you are using this, could you please reply with suggestions\comments\criticism, ill take all of it.
Ill release a new version of this around the 5-10th of January-once I get feedback. If a new version is announced, ill wait for that to be released.
That version will improve balance, and implement any suggestions on these forums-it will also include all the policies\dilemmas\events related to this mod that I have made.

Install instructions are in the readme-but this mod has quite a complicated install-so some degree of modding experience is desirable (but that wont stop newbs from trying
