Notes[edit]

Why doesn't this article consist of more countries and their international rankings? Whatever, happen to Canada, the UK, Iceland, Norway, France, Germany, and etc... Is there a lack of available data for this information? Why are these specific countries chosen for this article?

Because the articles haven't been created yet. The Evil Spartan 14:53, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

AfD time?[edit]

Actually looking over this whole article it looks like a badly put together coatrack of links to lists, articles and whatevers which may or may not have anything to do with international rankings. Some of the choices of what to include are completely arbitrary (I've removed some of these from the Economics section). There are also many many many obvious gaps in what is excluded (GDP per capita?). I know Wikipedia loves its "list" articles but this one's not even coherent.

I'm thinking this is a pretty good candidate for deletion.Volunteer Marek (talk) 22:00, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

Lacking content for a notable topic is not a reason for deletion. Instead, the article should be expanded.Miradre (talk) 22:19, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

Systematic disappearance of relevant Lists[edit]

Last time I looked, about a year ago, Wikipedia offered quick access to the sort of Lists you need to understand the basic facts about the world we all live in, especially Lists of countries by Population, nominal GDP, GDP at Purchasing Power Parity, nominal GDP per capita, and GDP per capita at Purchasing Power Parity. And articles about the Group of Two (USA+China), the G7, G8, and G20, generally provided links to such lists, with the Group of Two article also including such data for the US and China in the article itself. It seems that some person or group has now systematically removed all such information (or at the very least has systematically made it a great deal harder to find), in what seems at least to me quite likely to be the worst act of vandalism and/or information suppression ever inflicted on Wikipedia (except that I doubt that the motivation for doing so had anything to do with a mere desire to vandalize). Does anybody have any knowledge or ideas on how and why this came about, and what if anything can be done about it? Meanwhile I shall presumably just have to get my data from such places as the CIA World Factbook. Tlhslobus (talk) 06:39, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
