Currently we have the following economy-related tags (please let me know if I forgot any):

Neither of those (except , and ) have a tag wiki, so it can be hard to tell which of them should be used for a given question.

In addition, economics is defined by Wikipedia as the social science that studies economic activity. I'm pretty sure that many of the current questions are not related to academic research in any way — maybe would be a better fit?

Any suggestions about how we can bring a little bit of order into this economic confusion would be much appreciated!

companies and corporations are nearly the same to me, offhand. i know there are slight technical differences (again, offhand) but i think merging them is fine. probably point corporations to companies, since not all companies are corporations, but all corporations are companies.

  • I have just merged the [corporations] questions into [companies] and [nonprofit]. Thanks for your feedback :)
