Split up[edit]

Financial system deserves its own article and should not be a redirect to finance. There are numerous types of financial systems, and as it has been seen, the finance article doesn't cover all of them.Smallman12q (talk) 23:10, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Look out for possible copyright violations in this article[edit]

This article has been found to be edited by students of the Wikipedia:India Education Program project as part of their (still ongoing) course-work. Unfortunately, many of the edits in this program so far have been identified as plain copy-jobs from books and online resources and therefore had to be reverted. See the India Education Program talk page for details. In order to maintain the WP standards and policies, let's all have a careful eye on this and other related articles to ensure that no material violating copyrights remains in here. --Matthiaspaul (talk) 12:40, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

NOTE I have reduced this article to a minimal stub. It consisted almost entirely of verbatim pastes from copyright publications and websites. However, while a small amount of this came from the IEP, the vast majority was long standing. The copied sources included:

For the two book sources, I retained a brief quotation from each, clearly marked them as quotations, and sourced them. The irony of it all was that the London Business School published an article, "Fixing the financial system", in its Business Strategy Review which said:

Even online reference tools, like Wikipedia, struggle to simplify what is a gargantuan labyrinth of money on the move: “... the financial system is a set of complex and closely interconnected financial institutions, markets, instruments, services, practices, and transactions.”

Unbeknownst to the LBS, Wikipedia had simply lifted that verbatim from Gurusamy (2008) without crediting the author. Voceditenore (talk) 17:10, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

  • Note this latest removal pertains to material added after I had reduced the article to stub.[1] I also removed material which was written in poor English and was completely off-topic. Voceditenore (talk) 20:48, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
