Do nothing; immigrants can save enough money to either build quality housing for themselves or move into existing housing, and the economy can’t afford to build new houses.
Cut costs on building materials by building cheap wooden tenement buildings that entire families can stay in for very cheap in low-income areas, although they afford little space per room.
Incorporate marginally better-built apartments into established higher-income housing areas in the city but charge more for rent to gain back money lost in the construction.
Establish free housing in neighborhoods designated for immigrant workers with the assumption that the boost they add to the economy will eventually make it possible to develop the neighborhoods further.
Convince officials to wait to implement new laws until the petrol industry has gotten a more substantial foothold.
Decide to implement regulations specific to reducing water pollution; however, leave out regulations regarding the air pollution because ultimately, contaminated water is more dangerous than smoggy air.

Use the new transportation methods for smaller-scale trade and wait for a more opportune economical time to enter the global trade system.
Decide to tax the citizens of your city and use taxpayers money to pay for international trade.
Form a trade agreement with neighboring nations, although it may limit your options internationally.
Decide to tax the imports and not increase the tax rates of the citizens.
Convince people that, due to the fact that the economy would not benefit from modified laws, there should not be a change in the current regulations.
Create laws that protect only workers holding citizenship in the industries; exclude any immigrants or guest workers from these benefits in order to keep labor costs lower.
Decide to enforce and develop laws that ensure the safety of all workers, but reduce the minimum wage in order to compensate for the money lost in improving working conditions.
To make the people happy, establish several regulations that not only guarantee premium working conditions for all laborers, but also raise the minimum wage by 30% of the original figure.
Decide to rush through the building process of the bridge in order to finish it as quickly as possible; the completion of the bridge will allow for money and resources to be used for other projects.
Implement routine safety checks on the bridge, but only after it has been build; this way, the bridge is still built quickly, but it will be surveyed biannually.
Establish some regulations regarding safety both during and after the construction of the bridge at the cost of time and resources spent building it. The bridge would have to meet certain requirements in order to be considered complete.
Dedicate as much time and money as is needed to safely complete the bridge. Other projects couldn’t be undertaken until the bridge is complete, and the regulations would be difficult to meet, but they would guarantee the safety of inhabitants of SPICE City.
Incorporate the food into markets without storing any because it will drastically lower food prices and satisfy both sides.
Export most of the surplus to make a profit of it, but keep some in storage, despite the protests of advocates for the poor.
Save the majority of the food, but start up voluntary businesses like soup kitchens, although it will cost the government profit.
Distribute the food to the poor and undernourished of the city, although you don’t know what future crops will yield.

Establish a financial support benefit for households with only one child.
Spend money to increase infrastructure (schools, houses, stores, etc.) to support the growing population.
Because gang violence is still not within SPICE City’s bureau of investigation, let the violence run its course; doing anything else with the prohibition laws would only result in civilian unrest.
Repeal the prohibition laws in hopes that with the fall of the bootleg industry, the violence will subside as well.
Create stricter laws on street violence in hopes of catching gangsters and repeal the prohibition laws, although it may incite agitation.
Listen to the will of the people and let the prohibition laws remain intact but implement laws that insure the interests of citizens affected by the violence.
Decide not to provide insurance to those whose properties were damaged during the fire in favor of spending money on helping the economy recover. If the city is left to rebuild itself, then more money is saved.
Implement set prices on essentials so that costs don’t skyrocket to a point where people starve, but don’t provide any compensation for property damage. This approach could also involve stricter regulations regarding fire hazards, but few monetary sacrifices.
Give partial compensation to those whose houses were completely demolished, along with implementing regulations regarding fire safety, as well as set intermediate prices so that store owners can make a profit, but citizens can afford goods. This would result in the quick rebuilding of the city, but less money to help the economy recover.
In order to help citizens get back up on their feet, provide full compensations for any sort of damage of property. This approach relies on the citizens’ abilities to contribute to the economy and aid it in recovery.
