RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $6000Goal: $6000
Information icon.svg The 2018 moderator election has started! We are electing 6 moderators and 2 alternatives to serve in 2019. Nominate users here and read their campaign slogans here!

Peloponnesian War peace treaty[edit]

Should some mention be made of this - even if it was 'an excuse for a municipal junket/media event' (and when did having 'peace treaties and other official end of war announcements' rather than merely 'absence of fighting for sufficiently long for the next bout to be seen as part of a new sequence' come to be seen as a Good Thing?)

Greek Sovereign debt crisis[edit]

If you read the section about the debt crisis you may read: "The possible means of economic stimulation are:" and then only monetary policy recommendations are listed: "Reduce interest rates.", "Devalue its currency. ", "simply printing money". Thinking that the only possible means to stimulate an economy are monetary policies is plain bullshit. I call them the "philosophical money theories", economic theories which state that monetary policy alone can fix the problems of a stagnating or decreasing economy. I think Rationalwiki should not endorse this type of theories. Anyway, I'll wait a while for the opinions of others before changing the content of the page. -- (talk) 13:25, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

Anyone understanding economics[edit]

could write a bit more about the situation now, maybe in the previous 2 years and possible the future? I know i am asking too much but every info is welcomed. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs 19:25, 27 November 2017 (UTC)
