Misleading link[edit]

Economic union is a misleading link, probably the result of a mistranslation. Actually meant is the "Wirtschaftliche Vereinigung" ( http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wirtschaftliche_Vereinigung_%28Deutsches_Kaiserreich%29 ), which would be better translated as "commercial association". The WV was a common parliamentary group of different antisemitic and peasent partys. It's members favored protectionism, agriculture and craftsmen and opposed free trade and capitalism. Because it was only a parliamentary group (e.g. some members of the Farmers' League belonged to it, others did not), it should not be used as a term in an election content, but split in Antisemitic (2,5%) and Peasant Partys (1,9%). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hilarus von Baerenstein (talkcontribs) 11:29, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

A continuation of this; I have reverted to the original name, as both English language sources I have for the party name it the "Economic Union". Number 57 23:33, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
