I've added some initial discussion of the contributions of Prof. Hélène Rey here: [1]. There's a lot more that can be added, if anyone's familiar with her work and contributions.

To what extent does gross private domestic investment determine the rate of growth?

The article on gross private domestic investment says it "is an important component of GDP because it provides an indicator of the future productive capacity of the economy." To what extent does GPDI actually determine the rate of growth?

Please answer at Talk:Economic growth#To what extent does gross private domestic investment determine the rate of growth? thanks. EllenCT (talk)

Group of Twelve

Forgive my ignorance: does Group of Twelve really exist? I am struggling to find any evidence of it, let alone demonstration of notability, and the entry contrains no references. But it's tagged with this project so in case I'm simply uninformed I thought I'd ask before I send to AFD. Thanks for any help! Innisfree987 (talk) 05:20, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, tweaking my search terms I found it is used, but if anyone has a reference with basic definition, the entry could definitely use it--currently no references at all. Innisfree987 (talk) 17:20, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

The Fed and COVID-19 stimulus

Hello friends. I recently gave the Fed its own section in the following article: U.S. federal government response to the COVID-19 pandemic#Federal_Reserve. However, it could use attention from somebody that knows macro-economics and the Fed better than me. Basically, the section talks about the Fed's actions during the COVID-19 pandemic and the stock market correction in March. But the section stops there, and doesn't cover any of the Fed's actions in the months after that. Sometimes I hear the talking point "the Fed has spent $5 trillion dollars bailing out big businesses". I wanted to investigate that more, so my goal is to get this section complete enough that I can answer a question like that. Any help appreciated. Thank you. -Novem Linguae (talk) 16:52, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Disambiguation of links to "Liquidity"

There are currently over 200 links from articles to the disambiguation page Liquidity. Could you take a look at the current list and make some of the links point to a relevant article to help readers reach the right place?— Rod talk 10:34, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

Capitalism: A Journal of History and Economics

Hello, the article for the Capitalism: A Journal of History and Economics was recently proposed for deletion. Perhaps the members of this project would like to comment? It seems to be a KEEP in my opinion. Thriley (talk) 21:05, 13 February 2021 (UTC)

Anyone understand the economics of climate change mitigation?

In Resource: Featured_article_candidates/Greenhouse_gas_emissions_by_Turkey/archive1 a reviewer has commented:

"The economics focuses very heavily on monetary policy; what about demand-pull and demand-push policies (f.i. producement and other softer instruments)? Only one sentence mentioned under the Fossil fuel subsidies section (which isn't a subsidy) The economics section focuses a lot on GDP; what about employment."

I looked at Economy of Turkey to see if that might help but am struggling with my lack of economics knowledge - can anyone advise how to improve Greenhouse_gas_emissions_by_Turkey#Economics? Chidgk1 (talk) 07:59, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

Intensive growth link is broken

The link Intensive growth points to a section Economic development § Intensive versus extensive growth that no longer exists, and the article Economic development no longer mentions intensive growth. By contrast, Extensive growth is its own article. We should recover the content about intensive growth that was originally at this location and move it to an appropriate page - for example, we could rename Extensive growth to "Extensive and intensive growth" and cover both concepts in that article. What's an appropriate place for content about intensive growth? Qzekrom (she/her • talk) 05:06, 17 March 2021 (UTC)


Hi. Over the last few months the Human article has been transformed from this to its current state. This has involved a lot of citation hunting and reorganisation. This is in a push to get it to GA standard (see Talk:Human#Good article). It has been suggested that some input be sough from various wikiprojects as to further improvements. Please feel free to contribute or offer advice at this article. Regards Aircorn (talk) 00:53, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

Ceau?escu's debt shenanigans: the uncertain conclusion

I'm in a situation that bugs me, a lot. Sources say that he made Romania debt-free. Then other sources say that Romania in 1989 had virtually (key word here) zero debt. This intrigued me, so I proceeded to look for hard numbers. Well, the 1990 CIA World Factbook lists Romania's debt as "none" as of mid-1989 (source 1). But then I find another source which breaks down all Soviet bloc external debts ain't 0, not really. It's 0.4 billion as of 1989. What is zero in this source is the debt to the big bodies (IMF, World Bank) (source 2). Initially I thought that the Factbook overlooked this as too small, hence listing it as "none". But that can't be right, for the 1991 edition lists Romania's debt as of mid-1990 as...precisely 400 million, what the other source lists as the 1989 debt (source 3). I think of two possibilities: either the Factbook says "external debt" but actually means "public debt" (ie the state's debt, not including its individual citizens, but then again this was a totalitarian Communist state), or Romania somehow borrowed $400 million in the last days of 1989 after Ceau?escu was overthrown. Can anyone please help me make sense of all this? Is the debt 0 or 0.4 billion? Cause I want to write a comprehensive paragraph about the end result of his austerity policy, and I want to make sure I get it right. Transylvania1916 (talk) 17:57, 14 May 2021 (UTC)

Does withholding MFN count as sanctions?

I personally think so but I'm not sure. I have a source here. It states that MFN is the rule rather than the exception, and - with exceptions - MFN was withheld from the Communist countries during the Cold War. Can thus withholding MFN count as sanctions/economic warfare? Source here. Transylvania1916 (talk) 21:33, 23 June 2021 (UTC)

Unsourced stub article

This article has remained an unsourced stub since its creation in 2006, despite having been expanded a bit from the pgraph it orig started off as. Seeing that no one has cared to source it in all this time, until recently when a new section was created and 3 sources added there (1 of which is an unrel source per WP:KO/RS and should be removed), should the stub be left on WP or would it be okay to nominate it for deletion? -- Carlobunnie (talk) 03:45, 8 August 2021 (UTC)

Stakeholder theory and Stakeholder capitalism
