    Curious, why do have nominations for a position that doesn't exist?

    There is a Minister of Trade and Technology though ...

    Amirsan,

    The debates will be happening in this thread. Introduce yourself, ask few questions, answer a few and have fun with the debate!

    Since I am posting here,

    As a canidate for the first Minister of Trade and Technology, what are your objectives during your term? What technological path would you like to see our country take for the first 5 techs?

    I would like to nominate myself for this position.

    It really depends on the type of game we want to play. If we want an agressive, conquest game, I would say Bronze Working, Iron Working, Mathematics, Construction, and The Wheel in that order. If we are going for a peaceful game, I would say Bronze Working, Writing, Literature, Mysticism, and Pottery. For something in between, like if we are not sure yet, I would say Bronze Working, Masonry, Writing, Mathematics, Construction.

    Ok, I will answer the question with what I know. :)

    As Minister of Trade and Technology, what I do best, I will do my best to serve for this country. I love France. I have been successful in many games with France in Monarch and up. My objectives is a combination of gold/science and trade. My goal is to make France powerful in all of these three objectives. The way to do it is simple.

    France is unique. Why is France unique? Well becuase in vanilla, France is the only Commercial and Industrious nation. So what? Well they start with the two most expensive first level techs. And the best part of this is that they lead to the most expensive second level tech called Mathematics (Writing also has the same value). Now as Trade Minister, we would use this bonus to our ADVANTAGE, I will start researching Mathematics, get it first, put science to minimum, then trade away with the big chip tech. From Mathematics we can do whatever we didn't get from trading Math. This will be depending on what way we want to go in the early game like naervod said. If we want military way, then we would probably go to Horseback Riding or Iron Working (assuming we have all the first level techs), if peaceful ways then if we have Writing we will go to a peaceful productive tech, maybe Currency.

    I might of said too much, but this is what I will do exactly if I make the Minister of Trade and Technology. If I dont make it, then I offer this route to anyone who wants to use it.
