Template talk:Economics

Jump to: navigation, search

I'm trying to make it so that if the template is placed on the page of someone in the economists category, it doesn't automatically include the economics category, but I don't know how to check if a given page is in a category. I considered combing #ifeq and #pos to check if the wikitext included "category:economists" but I don't know a magic word for a page's wikitext either. Any ideas?

It's not possible. I'm not personally a fan of autoincluding categories, that's one of the reasons. Uke Blue 21:44, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
I think I might just get rid of the category-inclusion then. Everything with the template is probably already in the cat anyway, so I guess it's unnecessary. ThunderkatzHo! 21:48, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
Wait, tell me it's possible to not automatically include a category... Because just taking it out messes stuff up. Not sure I want to be the one to do this, but do we need to edit navsidebar so that a blank category results in no category? ThunderkatzHo! 21:57, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
I'm not sure. The navsidebar template was created by Armondikov, you probably want to ask em. Uke Blue 22:51, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Proposal to split the term "Capitalism"[edit]

On the "Competing Theme Parks" section, I propose splitting capitalism into to 2 subtypes, laissez-faire and social democratic. (talk) 00:29, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

It's an interesting suggestion, though I think that it's better to spend time on such a split in actual "article space" rather than in the template itself. Besides - to maybe get a little technical - a division between "laissez-faire" capitalism and "social democratic" capitalism does not seem obvious to me at all. Social democracy is a political philosophy or ideology mainly, not primarily a school of economic thought; I assume that what you might be thinking of is something akin to "welfare capitalism" or some such? Regardless, I think there's good reason to keep the template as it currently is. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 00:54, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

Please add Georgism[edit]

Thanks. I don't have editing privileges. CAPTCHER (talk) 00:28, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

You do indeed — you just edited by making this talk page comment. Also, the category "Economics" has now been added to the Georgism page. Thanks. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 00:59, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
