Trade Prices

This is a list of suggested buying and selling prices. Also included is the lowest selling price that affects the satisfaction of the citizens.

While it's important to make profit by selling goods at high prices, a balance between profit and citizen happiness is also very beneficial, particularly for the critical 'Big Four' goods. Selling below the satisfaction price will not affect the happiness of the citizens, but it can act as a buffer in case of a crisis that affects production, and it reduces the storage costs of cheap bulky goods such as grain.

Importance of goods

These are the goods that each class of citizens requires to stay happy.

Importance only means whether the goods increase the satisfaction of the citizens, not whether those citizens consume them. Some classes consume goods that do not affect their happiness (for example, poor citizens consume cloth and iron goods, which are not important to them and do not satisfy them).
