Funny, I've not had a real problem with morale so far (although I'm only playing on "normal" difficulty on medium maps at the moment). Personally I just try to keep the tax slider set so that I get an average morale level of between 60% & 70% and then boost my spending so that I'm saving only enough to make a relatively small cash profit per turn.

How many colonists are you placing aboard those colony ships? The most I usually go for is 500m, since trying to squeeze a large number of people onto a planet which has not yet had its PQ boosted tends to piss them off. That might be the reason for the low initial morale of your newer planets.
