Comments[edit]

It is correct that this is text from http://www.ncua.gov/letters/Prior1996/E-LET161.html a letter to credit unions from the NCUA. However, the letter is in the public domain as a publication by a federal agency.

  • Sorry, I did not see that it was .gov. However, that does not make it a Wikipedia article - it is essentially source material and is in any case far too long. Feel free to write a short article about the system. I agree that my savage reducing of the article to one paragraph is probably excessive - feel free to bring back a bit more of the stuff from the ncua document. -- RHaworth (Talk | contribs) 15:55, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
Context. Is this limited to the US? Should be stated. Also an independent ref showing that it is notable would be a good idea. -- RHaworth (Talk | contribs) 22:34, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
  • It appears a majority wants the entire NCUA contents. Not really excessive in light of the huge volume of Federal Agency documents (see "S" section) that are published about CAMELS, and the fact the system is also used internationally by many bank regulatory agencies. JPMorgan, long considered the most respected bank in the USA being assigned a "3" in management in CAMELS in 2012 was also extremely newsworthy. Admittedly the CAMELS Rating system as an article doesn't exactly have the draw of Fifty Shades of Grey, The Dark Knight Rises, Sex or The Walking Dead (TV series). However the relatively few people who find their way to this article are generally extremely interested in the specifics. When the CAMELS system fails things like the Financial crisis of 2007–2008 occur. Had CAMELS worked there would be no 2012 JPMorgan Chase trading loss. Rick (talk) 15:52, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
