Msg event.pngTrading Company's bubble bursts

One of [Root.GetUsableName]'s largest trading companies has failed, wiping out large sums of wealth. As is so often the case, the company was founded on highly speculative stocks that were far less safe than many had been led to believe. As a result, confidence in the government is shaken.

Msg event.pngForeign Trade Competition Rises

Foreign merchants are increasingly out-competing [Root.GetAdjective] traders in our ports, flooding our markets with cheap goods produced elsewhere. This is making it difficult for our traders to make a living. They have come before the [Root.GetRulerTitleOrRegency] to propose a new tariff on foreign goods, which would help protect them from competition from abroad.

Msg event.pngMerchant Fractures

A dispute has broken out between several extremely wealthy - and therefore influential - merchants over [Root.GetAdjective] trade policy. One group favors taking a mercantilist approach, calling for the government to ensure that the wealth generated by trade within [Root.GetUsableName] goes mainly to [Root.GetAdjective] traders and producers. The other dismisses this protectionist approach as old-fashioned and is in favor of free trade, which they claim would liberate them to seek profits around the world. Naturally, both sides consider the other to be at best highly unreasonable, at worst dangerous in their misguided beliefs.

Msg event.pngMerchants Spread Thin

Our merchants bring in money from trade all over the world. However, it seems that they have somewhat overstretched, and the [Root.GovernmentName] is not able to give them the full support of [Root.GetUsableName]'s diplomatic clout.
