|“|| He who nourishes neither God nor man, he who eats alone, gathers sin.|
- Rig-Veda, (m. 10, hymn CXVII)
Global Prosperity is one of the four Future Technologies and becomes available at the Library on the Information Age once all regular technologies have been researched. It requires a vast amount of Wealth and Knowledge, and time to research, and researching it increases the cost for all subsequent Future Technology research.
Researching Global Prosperity...
- ...sets all resources' (except Knowledge) Commerce Limits to maximum (999).
- ...increases all resources' gather rate by 25%.
- ...unlocks the option to research the Advanced Fighter and the Stealth Bomber at the Airbase.
Like all Future Technologies, Global Prosperity cannot be researched in Conquer the World mode.
Global Prosperity, along with Artificial Intelligence, are considered the best Future Technologies for a game that will predictably drag on in a long, protracted war, as they provide almost limitless resources to developed nations (even if hit by 1 or 2 Nuclear ICBMs) and the ability to create and reinforce entire armies within seconds.
