This is a painting of how the Song Dynasty set up the civil service exam.
During the Song Dynasty many occupations were important. They were the most advanced in technology so inventors and scientists were important in their time. The population grew rapidly so farmers had to grow crops well and efficiently to be able to feed all to China. Trading greatly increased in the Song Dynasty with silk and iron so iron miners were important as well as farmers again. Last, sailors were imported because a lot of trading was done with Japan and they needed sailors to get the goods to Japan to trade. They also traded with their northern rivals. This may sound weird but they traded and a symbol of peace. They gave the The Khitans, Jurchens, and Mongols iron and silk in trade for no invasions. Lastly, they traded with India for their cotton and spices. This was the economics of the Song Dynasty.
