    Hello !

    Not so long ago, i read a very good article which explained under which circumstance it was better to run a Scientist or a Merchant in order to increase your beakers/gold generation.

    It made a number of calculations including a comparison between your :gold:::science: ratio empire-wide and in the city where you want to add a specialist.

    The only thing is: i can't seem to be able to find this article anymore, and i don't remember where i saw it, nor who wrote it. Could anyone be so kind as to provide a link, if you know the article i'm talking about ? Thanks a lot.
