Economy Edicts typically improve your means of making money, whether by making Industry better or making your island more appealing to tourists.

Industry AD Campaign

"Raises the export prices of factory processed goods for three years."
"Let us tell the world about our quality industry goods, Presidente! By launching a worldwide Industry ad campaign we will raise the export prices of our factory goods with 20% for the next 3 years. Keep in mind that this will not affect the prices of foods and raw materials."

  • Requires: TV Station
  • Cost: $8,000
  • Effects:
    • Raises export prices of Factory processed goods(+20%) for 3 years.

Pollution Standards

"Reduces factory pollution, but raises factory maintenance"
"Thick clouds of black smoke may be clear signs of progress, but for some reason they seem to displease both our citizens and the tourists. Installing pollution control devices in our factories will raise their upkeep with 40%. This edict will cut the industrial pollution in half, but has no effect on pollution created by the population."

  • Requires: An industrial Factory.
  • Cost: $500
  • Effects:
    • Reduces Factory Pollution(~50%).
    • Increases Factory Maintenance(+40%).

Tourism AD Campaign

"Increases Tourism Rating for three years."
"Let us tell the world about our friendly people and wonderful beaches, Presidente! By launching a Tourism ad campaign we will attract more foreign tourists with fat pocketbooks to our beautiful country."

The Headliner

"Improves tourism rating, entertainment, and U.S. relationships for three years."
"The Headliner - even now, several decades past his prime, he will be a real boon to Tropico. His visit will attract more tourists and somewhat raise the quality of all entertainment buildings. Some aging US senators are rumored to be his fans, so the US relationships will also be improved."

  • Requires: Night Club
  • Cost: $5,000
  • Effects:
    • Increases US Relationships(+10) for 3 years.
    • Increases Tourism Rating(~20%) for 3 years.
    • Increases Entertainment building's Service Quality(+10%) within 6 months for the duration of 3 years. A worker has to show for a 'Work-Shift' to trigger the increase. Overall Tropican Entertainment Happiness will slowly increase as a result, during the 3 years.

Tax Cut

"Raises the respect of all citizens for 3 years. Doesn't stack with itself if issued several times."
"Desperate times call for desperate measures, my Presidente! Normally the government takes money from people, but if we instead give them some pesos back, we will surely win the respect of everyone on the island. Be careful, the people are quick to forget such kindness, so this drastic action will have effect only for the next few years."

  • Cost: (#ofWageEarners)*$200 [Wage Earners do not normally include Children, Retires and Unemployed; exception being when Social Security edict is active]
  • Effects:
    • Immediately raises the Respect(up to +20) of all citizens. Doesn't stack with itself, unable to re-issue for 3 years. Individual respect may amortize downward during the 3 years, as Tropicans forget about the 'windfall', dealing with every-day-life. This is a 'quick-fix', not a long term solution.

Note: See #Geographic TV Special for a similar and cheaper means to boost Respect.

Building Permit

"Increases all construction costs by 20%. 10% of the money spent on construction will go to the Swiss bank account. Lowers the standing with the intellectuals."
"Scratch my back and I will scratch yours. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, know what I mean? A "special" building permit will increase construction prices with 20%, but 10% of the money go directly to your Swiss Bank account. The intellectuals certainly know what you mean and their respect will decrease until you cancel the edict."

If we allow them to film and broadcast a feature film about our country, everybody will be proud and will respect you more, particularly the Environmentalists and Intellectuals. This will also be a great permanent boost to our tourism and will attract many Eco Tourist visitors. Effects will last for 3 years."
