    These are rarely done well. I'm looking for something along the lines of Tales of the Reicarnated lord, or Extraordinary genius, The Human Emperor, To Be a Power in the Shadows or any novel where the MC actually builds an effective powerbase and uses his knowledge to make an obscene amount of money and use his organization to effect society and his nation in the direction he wants. Basically I don't want a Meng hao situation. I also really hate Second chance video game stories (They could easily make way more money just betting on sports/E-sports that they know will win and the stock market) because of all that wasted potential of their foreknowledge and most authors are really terrible at game design and understanding that they get balanced and patched way too often.

    Edit Here's A List of Fics that I've read and enjoyed:

    I'd say Miracle Throne fits the bill, except the novel got axed

    I think God of Money would be exactly what you're looking for.

    For some reason I didn't like it. Don't know why. It felt like the Mc was way dumber than he thought he was.

    I swear I thought I typed that in as one of my examples.:confused::confused::confused: Yeah God of Money, Dreamer in a Spring Boudoir and Transmigrator meets Reincarnator definitely count.

    Last twenty or so released chapters have seen a big drop in translation quality. I’ve read better machine translations.

    Started reading this. Got to ch290 and the relationships are already starting to rot my brain. It has so much potential but it just wastes too much on trashy melodrama nonsense.

    Sadly it was the only one you recommended that I haven't read yet. Really enjoyed the other ones though.
