Magic Industry Empire - Volume 3 Chapter 61




No matter what answer Count Stagg wanted, Xu Yi didn’t give him any answers.

This is the response that Xu Yi should give. Even if he wanted to support her highness Seveni, he definitely couldn’t express any distrust or denial of his highness Eric because first, that was disrespectful.

Not to mention that even if Count Stagg wanted to have a honest conversation with Xu Yi, Xu Yi didn’t believe that he would reveal his true feelings as someone from the Stagg Family and the conservative faction.

In the end, the two were on different sides. What decided their actions didn’t come from their own thoughts.

Especially someone like Count Stagg who represented the Stagg Family. Perhaps every word he said and every question he asked represented the will of the Stagg Family.

So Xu Yi didn’t answer this question, he just gave a vague attitude. He had never met his highness Eric before, so he doesn’t understand him at all, so he can’t say anything about favouring him or not.

Regarding Xu Yi’s answer, Count Stagg was very disappointed, but he felt a bit relaxed. He didn’t keep asking and just asked Xu Yi about the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s next plans before ending the conversation.

When leaving the City Lord Manor, Xu Yi felt that he had missed something.

But carefully thinking about it, he found that it was impossible for him to miss anything from Count Stagg. So he just thought about it before Xu Yi gave up this question.

After leaving the City Lord Manor, Xu Yi headed to the Fersen Carriage Company. He went and found chairman Pompeii who by habit was tasting teas in his office.

Chairman Pompeii was very happy after seeing Xu Yi. He wanted to invite Xu Yi to taste some tea with him, but after Xu Yi said something, an agility that didn’t match his body made him jump up.

“What? The Magic Car has been developed?” Chairman Pompeii looked at Xu Yi with wide eyes as his face was covered in shock and joy, “Really? Where is it? Quickly take me to have a look!”

Xu Yi revealed a faint smile and hooked his finger, as chairman Pompeii followed him with a smile.

However, Xu Yi didn’t immediately bring chairman Pompeii to the magic machine development center in the Falling Rain Valley. Rather he brought him to the Clear Water Blue Sky Neighbourhood that the Amrit Chamber of Commerce was developing by the Sandy River.

This bank had been transformed and the environment had become quite clean. Also in this small neighbourhood by the river bank, it was filled with villas with new concept magic rooms that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce designed.

Because they were built with the new magic room concept, these houses were filled with household magic machines and enjoyed a stockpile of Magic Crystals. The people who lived here would all experience a different kind of life.

For normal people, this concept was not only very new, it was also very practical.

So even if the Amrit Chamber of Commerce were selling these villas for a price of eight thousand gold coins, they had sold a hundred of them in less than two months, which was half of the neighbourhood.

It was because of this that chairman Cruise was filled with even more admiration for Xu Yi.

At first he thought that because the cost of these new concept magic houses were too high, so the price would be high and not many people would be able to afford them.

The truly rich people wouldn’t want small villas like this, so the sales wouldn’t be good.

However, when determining the price, Xu Yi had chairman Cruise raise the price from five thousand up to eight thousand.

When they began selling it, the situation had surpassed chairman Cruise’s expectations.

Just by selling these hundred villas, it allowed the Amrit Chamber of Commerce to gain over two hundred thousand after subtracting the costs.

If the entire neighbourhood was sold, the Amrit Chamber of Commerce would be able to earn a large profit of over five hundred thousand gold coins!

In this situation, although chairman Cruise heard Xu Yi’s analysis, he was still very confused.

Because to him, the people of Banta City were very poor, they couldn’t afford this kind of home. As for the very rich people, they would buy their own manors.

This kind of housing in the middle was something that no one should care about.

But Xu Yi told him that there was something called “middle class” in Banta City right now. Those people aren’t considered very right, but they weren’t considered poor either.

These houses that were different from normal homes, but were less expensive that manors, would suit the needs of these people.

Facts had proven Xu Yi’s analysis.

Chairman Cruise had a wide social circle in Banta City, but the ones who bought these new concept magic homes were all normal citizens that he didn’t have any impressions of.

If he had to mention one that he knew, it would be the Ireland Chamber of Commerce’s vice chairman Kovac.

Seeing Kovac who was just a peasant of Ireland Village two years ago suddenly take out ten sheets of thousand gold coin banknotes and request to buy a villa, chairman Cruise’s mouth fell down in shock.

When did a peasant that he didn’t even care about become able to pull out ten thousand gold coins at once?

When chairman Cruise passed his thoughts to Xu Yi, he was brutally ridiculed by Xu Yi.

The Ireland Chamber of Commerce had developed fast in the past two years and was the leader of the component industry in Banta City. In the last half a year, they even began producing magic machines.

For example, the Ireland Chamber of Commerce’s Magic Kettle that came out this year, because it had good quality and was cheap, they even stole quite a bit of the market in Banta City from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.

The current Ireland Chamber of Commerce’s monthly profits by Xu Yi’s estimates was at least over twenty thousand gold coins.

As the Ireland Chamber of Commerce’s vice chairman and the largest shareholder other than Freeman, Kovac being able to take out ten thousand gold coin at once wasn’t anything surprising.

Chairman Cruise kept expressing his shock while asking Xu Yi why he raised a tiger.

Since he knew the Ireland Chamber of Commerce had decent potential, why didn’t he stop them ahead of time from actually stealing the market from them?

Xu Yi smiled without saying a thing, not explaining anything.

Of course he wouldn’t tell chairman Cruise that he had done this on purpose.

Otherwise he could have killed the Ireland Chamber of Commerce while it was still developing.

But this was indeed raising a tiger, so Xu Yi couldn’t refute chairman Cruise.

“Hei, chairman Xu, tell me…..do you think I should run a public transport line here?” Chairman Pompeii’s voice pulled Xu Yi back from his memories, “Look, the environment is good here, so there will be people coming here to play. Although this isn’t considered far from Banta City, it still takes half an hour to walk here so it isn’t considered close. If there’s a transport line that runs here, there should be many people who ride it.”

Xu Yi looked at chairman Pompeii in disdain, can’t you have a bit of prospect?

“Although opening a line here, it would mostly benefit the residents here, so you shouldn’t think of making money off this.” Xu Yi shook his head and said, “Although this place is far by walking, chairman Pompeii, you shouldn’t forget that there are bicycles now. It would only take ten minutes to ride here by bicycle.”

Hearing Xu Yi mention the bicycle, chairman Pompeii looked at Xu Yi with an aggrieved look as he said, “I say, chairman Xu, can you not mention that damn bicycle? Because of your Frestech Chamber of Commerce developing the bicycle, people aren’t taking our carriages now. There are even people who ride bicycles from our Banta City to Karma City or Saltan City. I really don’t understand, it’s sixty to seventy kilometers, but they’re actually willing to ride a bicycle instead of a horse carriage!”

“Of course, the bicycle doesn’t require money.” With a laugh from behind them, chairman Cruise who had been contacted walked over, “Then again, the bicycle isn’t slower than the horse carriage, so why would they spend money?”

“Humph, at least it’s more comfortable.” Chairman Pompeii glared at chairman Cruise before turning to Xu Yi with a wide smile, “But when chairman Cruise develops the Magic Cars, I think that every will choose to ride in our Magic Cars. Don’t you think, chairman Xu?”

Chairman Cruise looked at Xu Yi and said with a laugh, “I heard chairman Xu mention this last year, but I never thought that it would take up to now to develop. I really want to see how amazing this thing is, causing me to agonizingly wait for over a year for it.”

Xu Yi shook his head with a smile. He called the two of them to board chairman Pompeii’s luxurious horse carriage and quickly sped off towards the Falling Rain Valley.

When the horse carriage started, Xu Yi pulled out a map of the Lampuri Kingdom and placed it in front of the two. He looked at the two doubtful people and said with a serious look, “This time I called you here to participate in the first official test drive of the Magic Car. Other than showing you the merits and performance of the Magic Car, there’s an important cooperation proposition for the two of you. If we can reach a deal, this will probably bring a large profit to your companies that will surpass your imaginations.”

Chairman Cruise and chairman Pompeii looked at each other, being able to see the lights in each other’s eyes. Then they nodded to Xu Yi, “Speak.”

Seeing the expectant looks the two had, Xu Yi revealed a smile and pointed at a road between Banta City and Anvilmar City. He said with a serious look, “The Fersen Carriage Company has cooperated with us like this before, but it isn’t something that has a system yet. If I summarize it, it is the transport of commodities across regions, which will be called logistics.”
