My economy gets stalled at Emperor level. At the lower levels I found that I could expand early okay with priests, libraries, and some cottages supporting the economy. I have tentatively concluded that I am getting to Code Laws too slowly. Can somebody give me a guideline? What do you usually try to have in place before you research CL? Sometimes I can trade Alphabet for it, but if not, my economy is toast. Is there an article on economy management at Emperor and higher? Thanks.
