Initial content[edit]

I saw a hole and started to fill it; of course, I have a deep interest in this topic from several angles. My wish is that the coverage be as extensive as this important topic needs, from the requisite viewpoints (technical, political, ...). jmswtlk 19:44, 15 January 2007 (UTC)


Ought some of this content (History of Calculating Life Annuities) move over to the History of the Life annuity page? jmswtlk 22:05, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Or be a separate page dealing with History that we can organize to early, mid, and present. Then, we would need a Techniques page (that points to current work and thinking) plus more on the Futures (where recent developments have gone and what might be the other improvements). jmswtlk 22:26, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Merge Annuity (financial contracts)[edit]

The Annuity (financial contracts) page (Category: Contract law) seems to be mainly about the concept of life annuities, and contains very little legal provisions. So why not merge it in here, or at least its appropriate non-legal content? --Wikiphile1603 (talk) 02:37, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Removal of table in 'History' section[edit]

Want to proactively provide explanation for deletion. I performed extensive searching of the internet and read many PDFs (gasp!) and couldnt find one source that confirmed values in the table. The Ulpian values match a table attributed to him, but the values are of a multiplier, not a fee, as the table caption suggested. Searches for other values associated with other historical figures returned no results. There is ambiguity of the nature of the value (price? what units? what currency? value? multiplier?). Thus, I deleted the unreferenced, ambiguous data. Regards, January2009 (talk) 03:31, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
