The article on money has undergone extensive revision, with many topics moving off into their own articles such as the history of money, commodity money, economics, and so on. Many of the comments on the discussion page were addressing part of the article on money that no longer exist, or have been moved to other locations.
The sections on the essential characteristics and desirable features of money have been more clearly defined.
The section on etymology needs a little beefing up; it was mostly moved along with the history of money.
The section on money supply toward the end of the article should probably be moved to another article; it seems to dominate the article inappropriately, as this is more of a political policy discussion.
There may need to be new sections added on the topic of money. Perhaps a section titled the politics of money. Or Money and Religion, or Religious teachings on money. Or perhaps also the relation of banking to money, rather than just credit as money--which is discussed. Such sections need to be handled carefully, as they are extremely hot topics, and the neutral point of view must be upheld.
Although the discussion of usury in relation to money is now in the usury article, something probably needs to be said about how money and usury relate here in the article on money. Jason Hommel 07:12, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
- I like pulling large sections like history of money out onto separate pages, but paring down the section on the main page to nothing but "Money has developed over the years from gold, silver, copper, brass, iron, stones, or shells to paper, or electronic entries being managed by complex international banking systems." seems like a bit much. It should be a good solid couple of paragraphs. Also, I'm not sure the section on slang words for money is necessary, and if it is, it's much too long. I'd pull it into a separate article and link to it at the bottom under "see also." Jun-Dai 20:03, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
