Well, for better or worse, I have grasped another nettle and Wikified another potentially controversial topic. If the world thinks that I have not maintained neutrality, let the world make changes (hopefully, justified rather than arbitrary). --David91 07:49, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)
16th August 2005, 23:08: I changed the end paragraphs, which I think gave too much the idea that free trade was good and neomercantilism bad. From the beginning of the article this is I believe a change of tone. Also, I think any article on subsidies and protectionism as volontary policies should really mention fair trade theories and ideas, so I added a reference to that. (Arnaud L).
Thank you for contributing. I made minor changes to standardise the English and slightly amended the wording about dumping which is always controversial. I hope you feel that I have preserved the spirit of what you intended. -David91 04:12, 17 August 2005 (UTC)
This article needs considerable work. It seems to be a critique of neo-mercantalism from a "classical liberal" perspective with such terms as statist and with the analysis from that perspective in the final paragraphs. This article should tell the story of neo-mercantilism with criticism at the end, not throughout the entire article. Also, Britain became dominant economically due to its mercantilist policies, and fell behind after the repeal of the Corn Laws to the USA and Germany who followed a neo-mercantilist policy known as the National or American System or simply American School of Hamilton and in Germany List through Bismarck. --Northmeister 04:21, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
Restructured elements of this article to be coordinated historically. Still need work in areas of Germany and United States. --Northmeister 15:42, 31 May 2006 (UTC)i
Marked as PoV, as parts of it read as neomercantilist propaganda.

- The parts about U.S. and Germany are biased and not informative enough to be substantial points. What does neutrality in WWI have to do with this topic, even tangentially? (added by anonymous author)
- I removed the POV tag as unhelpful. As the original author indicated on this talk page, this subject matter is complicated and controversial. If you have a complaint about the wording of the page then it would be better to suggest the specifics here or rewrite the sections that are incorrect. Simply tagging an article as POV isn't the right approach in my opinion. Jeff Carr (talk) 01:03, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
- Surely, the East Asian developmental model (as exemplified by Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea) can be described as neomercantilist? They were heavily influenced by Hamiltonian America, which is included here under 'Examples of neomercantilism'. I used to think that these three post-war economies are what the 'neo-' referred to, actually. If not, does anyone else think that some of their more relevant policies can be briefly mentioned here anyway? I think it'd help to list aspects of this economic school of thought implemented in the modern era, even though there might be no 'purely' neomercantilist economies existing in the world today. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 16:50, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
