How to earn GoldEdit
There are four main ways to get Gold:

Your people donate Gold to you every hour. As it is calculated as a percentage tax against total population, you can increase Tax revenue by either raising the Tax Rate in City Hall or by building and upgrading houses to accommodate more people. However, higher Tax Rate will lead to a decrease in Happiness and a downfall in population. For details, please refer to Tax Rate.
