  4. A player can spend a trade good in one of the following ways:
    1. In place of spending one resource.
    2. In place of spending one influence. However, trade goods cannot be spent to cast votes during the agenda phase.
    3. To resolve an effect that specifically requires that a trade good be spent.
  5. A player can exchange their trade goods with other players during a transaction.
  6. When a player receives a commodity token from another player, the player who received that token places it in their trade good area with the trade good side of the token faceup.
