Questions Re:Simulation and Policy Effects

Hey I’m working on a mod and I have some hopefully basic questions.

Can simulations generate money?

The income multiplier for policies looks like it uses more or less the standard format for equations. If this is the case what is the target for? What function does the target play in the equation?
I’ve tried using this but it seems to have no effect on the income the policy generates.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
