Proposed Major Rewrite[edit]

The articles on consumption on wikipedia are quite badly organised, propose that we use this page as a main page and link out to the different theories and consumption function pages. Please comment Benuel (talk) 16:34, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

The other consumption talks about it economically, so the distinction fails.

Both consumption and spending need a lot of work. Merging them would be a start JQ 12:24, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Just to put on record, that spending has been redirected to this page. Benuel (talk) 16:34, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Reference list[edit]

I looked up the books on the reference list. Some info I found doesn't agree with the references as listed, so I've put the references with a question mark on the list. If you know which sources were used, could you fix the list, please? --Foggy Morning (talk) 02:48, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

macro vs micro and merging[edit]

Until this edit, this article had a largely macro orientation. Maybe it should be re-labeled to indicate that it's macro-specific, and anything which is micro be moved to consumer theory and/or demand (economics). CRETOG8(t/c) 11:38, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Weird first line.[edit]

I'd rewrite this if I could figure out what it was trying to get across: "Consumption refers to consume the want satisfying capability of a commodity or consumption means the consumption of utility." But I just have no clue. Maybe someone else can figure it out? (talk) 05:17, 7 August 2011 (UTC)
