I'm thinking of ways to organize the goods into categories, to make this more accessible. The cats I can see are :

  • Public goods
  • Scarcity
  • Consumption
  • Production
  • Information
  • Status/others

Any comments/suggestions? ~ trialsanderrors 18:03, 25 June 2006 (UTC)


I just found this template. I can see how it is meant to be used for mostly "good" in the economic sense. Because there is a bit of overlap though, with other topics altogether, I have added the "see also" section at the bottom and included the table on those articles. CQ 12:27, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

I have removed it, this is a template for economic goods, not the word "good". Martin 12:30, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

durable, non-durable goods[edit]

Shouldn't there only be one entry regarding durable/non-durable goods, since one redirects to the other? Perhaps "(non-)durable goods." -Grick(talk to me!) 21:59, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Necessity good[edit]

Please add Necessity good to this template.--Cheers! (talk) 23:01, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
