Gold (Civ3)
Commerce is the exchange of goods and cash between communities within and around a city, the exchange of knowledge and ideas, travel and shopping. It is the commercial exploitation of goods and services within your society.

Commerce production depends upon the terrain within the city's radius, because citizens laboring there produce commerce. Commerce output is reduced by local Corruption, which is based on empire size and distance from a capital. When the City Display is open, you can see what the citizens are producing.

The allocation of tax revenues into these three categories is set using the Revenue Slider on the Domestic Advisor.
