1º turn: Investor action
2º turn: Produce
3º turn: Factory
4º turn: Produce
5º turn: Move

I suppouse that if the 'investor card' is near to you, this oppening is better that if the 'investor card' is far from you....

The first move Investor can be a good thing IMO if you have the investor card with you and if you're able to make a good advantage towards your opponents, let's say a couple more million, at least. If you can get a 4 mill income, plus 2 mill from the investor card, then you have a full 6 mill which is enough to get a #3 share and maybe, consequently, the control of a nation before tax.

Don't forget that after the Investor, if you go to Produce and then Factory you may find yourself with empty pockets to pay those 5 mill of the factory...

Produce is free, and the Nations starts with 11 millons, if I 'invertor' this take 5 millons, if I Factory this take 5 millons....

Of course, I supousse the nation that starts the game with the 1 millon interest and the 4 millons interes in play by a player....

As it is too expensive to advance very fast in the late game (it isn't possible anymore to do tax/invest/tax...), i think you are right, it's quite good to expand and build factories, before starting taxation.
In the new one, a lot of small jumps on the X track won't work, you need only a few very big jumps, and for that you must be ready, with factories and armies.

I would never skip Taxation, as this is the one action that gives the controlling player an advantage over his opponents.

Starting out with Factory - and then either Produce or Investor, depending on when you will recieve the Investor card (and you need money in your pocket) is the better strategy in my opinion
