This WikiProject focuses on improving articles related to the field of economics.


  • The goal of this project is to provide a forum for discussion of economics articles and topics, and through discussion, provide guidelines for articles related to the field of economics.
  • The vision of this project is to improve every economics article substantially so that every article reaches the level of quality of a Featured Article.
  • The aspiration of this project is to make Wikipedia an authoritative guide to economics.

Vehicles for discussion include relevant sections below and at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Economics.

Editing guidelines[edit]

When editing, project members should keep in mind the core Wikipedia content policies, Verifiability, No original research and Neutral point of view.

  • Economic theories and viewpoints presented should be supported by reliable sources. Academic and peer-reviewed publications are highly valued and usually the most reliable sources in areas where they are available.
  • Various economic theories and viewpoints should be given due weight in proportion to their prominence in reliable sources.
  • Regarding validity, peripheral or parochial theories should not have their centrality to the discipline misrepresented. We should describe mainstream and majority views as such, and minority views as such.

WikiProject Economics/Reliable sources and weight gives guidance on obtaining reliable sources and assigning due weight in economics articles. WikiProject Economics/Style guide describes a proposed style for economics articles.
