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.
