Economist???[edit]

Mr. Delbono is a politician. Why is he listed in the Italian Economists category. That category is for people who have made distinguished contributions to Economics (discoveries, books or papers published, economics prizes won, etc.). Encyclops (talk) 00:13, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Prior to being a politician he worked as an economist and has published numerous academic papers. I accept that he is probably not notable as an economist, but the fact remains that he has been employed in that field throughout his career. There are many parallels on Wikipedia, Evan Harris and Richard Taylor (UK politician) being listed in Category:English medical doctors come to mind. Rje (talk) 18:09, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
