The new SimCity features an advanced global market that simulates true supply and demand prices based on the decisions of players around the world! If you decide to specialize your cities in big business, you can buy and sell raw materials and manufactured goods over the global market. If water is a record high in prices, will you still buy on the global market or claim another city in your region and import? Each city has finite resources, so you may start with a clean wind farm, but have to import oil to power your growing city. The Global Market provides another way to play!
