His own divorce
I don't know how much personal detail should be added to these bio articles but would a reference to his own acrimonious divorce be appropriate? It certainly has some relevance and also some "irony" value considering (according to the wiki page) "He has been labelled a "happiness guru" for his ability to quantify the increase in happiness for individuals who are married or have sex frequently, work which has applications in divorce law".

I agree with you. I think earlier editions of this wiki entry has an entry about his divorce court case Blanchflower v. Blanchflower, but then there were a bit too much (salacious?) details which may detract readers from Blanchflower's contributions to economics. They were divorcing because his wife left him for another woman. I guess given the circumstances his claim that married people are happier isn't really that ironic. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pelikan4001 (talk • contribs) 13:43, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
- I included it in this article as a See also section minutes ago. Like I stated in that edit summary, it's ridiculous that any mention of it has been excluded from this article. I would state that Blanchflower, who apparently edited this article in 2012 as Blanchflower , removed the material. But his contributions don't show that he has repeatedly removed the material....at least not under that registered account. Flyer22 (talk) 01:53, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:Blanchflowerthewagecurve.jpg
Image:Blanchflowerthewagecurve.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
After reviewing this article, I am going to have to delist this article for the following reasons:
- The education section in unreferenced.
- The Monetary Policy Committee section needs updating.
- There's very little information on his life, and the article doesn't seem to have a feeling of completeness.
Upon this stuff being fixed, it can be renominated at GAN. Wizardman 23:17, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
Phillips curve confusion
The section on the Phillips curve does not in any way make clear what Blanchflower's disagreement with the curve is --- his "re-defined" curve sounds (to a layman, at any rate) identical to the curve described in the Phillips curve article! 184.108.40.206 (talk) 12:29, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
This poor man is CONSTANTLY being referred to as Danny Blanchflower in the UK media, confusing his name with that of the legendary footballer. Sarah Montague on Radio 4 just now called him this to his face. I think he's probably given up correcting people. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 07:53, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
