Wealth & Financial state

As Elder of the Brotherhood, Maxson has access to large amounts of resources that were acquired, either through trade, luck, or force, by the various patrols in the Capital and Commonwealth Wastelands.   However, the majority of his, and by extension, the East Coast Brotherhood's wealth is not easily traded. Aside from some Brotherhood 'protected' plantations and the Project Purity purifier in the Capital Wasteland, the majority of the wealth exists in the form of technology, and he often orders patrols to 'convince' local farms to pay tribute to the Brotherhood in thanks for not being wiped out.
