10.4.6 THE MINISTRY OF TRADE
(See also HELP TRADING, HELP SELLING, and HELP SHOPS) The Ministry of Trade is responsible for obtaining commodities for use by the city government and for facilitating the transfer of those commodities to the Ministries that will use them. The Ministry has three tools it may use to accomplish this ongoing task: 1. Setting the price at which the city will purchase and sell commodities to the public. 2. Setting the price at which other Ministries may purchase commodities internally, as well as a reserve amount, so that the city doesn't completely run out of commodities. 3. Maintaining 'reserves' of commodities for use by the city proper. Keeping a number of commodities this way will be very important for many city administration tasks. Commands for the Ministry of Trade: CITY COMMS CITY COMM SUMMARY - Shows a summary table of the current commodity status of your city. CITY COMM SET MIN <comm> <amount> - Sets the reserve amount for a particular commodity. Reserved commodities are not available for purchase. CITY COMM SET INTERN <comm> <amount> - Sets the price which other Ministries will pay for a particular commodity. CITY COMM BUY <comm> FOR <amount> - Sets the price which the city's commodity-purchasing NPC will pay for commodities. CITY COMM SET AVAILABLE <comm> <amount> - Sets the available amount of a commodity to be sold. CITY COMM SELL <comm> FOR <amount> - Sets the public sell price. People can then buy any available stock at this price per unit. TRADE FUNDS - Shows you how much gold the Ministry of Trade has, as well as how many of each commodity can be bought (based on availability, the current internal purchase price, and the Ministry of Trade's current gold stores). You never need to actually purchase the commodities, it is an automatic process and is done for you when you execute a command that requires them. CITY ECONSTATUS - See information on your city's economic status. CITYWITHDRAW TRADE <amount> - Withdraw money from the Ministry's account. WITHDRAW <amount> <commodity> - From the council room, withdraw commodities from the reserve. - This command is limited to the City Leader and Minister only. DEPOSIT <amount> <commodity> - From the council room, deposit commodities into the reserve. (See also HELP TRADING, HELP SELLING, and HELP SHOPS)
