Capital goods

Hallo, Huckelberry, I noticed you have made several good economic pages, big thanks for that! The page on Capital goods was already covered by Capital, so I've turned it into a redirect; hope you don't mind that. Please let me know if anything was left out on that page!

Not at all! I noticed that after I had finished it--it was a good exercise nevertheless. Huckelberry 14:03, 6 February 2011 (CST)

Another welcome

Huckelberry, you are off to a great start! Welcome to the group. (I did some slight cleanup to your talk page. Hope that's ok.) -- RayBirks 15:10, 6 February 2011 (CST)

Thanks! Its good to be here. And of course, your cleaning/editing make for good learning. Huckelberry 15:18, 6 February 2011 (CST)
And, my apologies for misspelling the verb wikify earlier on my edit summary for Evenly Rotating Economy, as I may have gotten you off on the wrong foot. When I used the Show preview button to check that edit, I forgot to proofread what I had typed in the edit Summary box. To wikify is, of course, to supply the set of double square brackets "[[" and "]]" around a term so that it can link to another entry somewhere else on the wiki. I will try to pay even more attention to detail in the future. Meantime, keep up the great work! -- RayBirks 22:18, 6 February 2011 (CST)
Haha, I got the concept right.. just not the spelling. Huckelberry 23:10, 6 February 2011 (CST)


Hi Huckelberry, I hope you don't mind if I modify your utilitarianism definition (once I find time to). The way it is now makes it seem like "act utilitarianism" is THE utilitarianism. I think rule utilitarianism should have equal weight, and that, since it's the Mises Wiki, Mises' particular formulation of utilitarianism (which is distinctly different from Bentham's and Mill's) should be given center stage. Is that okay? Dsanchez 03:51, 7 February 2011 (CST)

Of course. We should have both however: maybe my stub should be moved to Utilitarianism the book (Ill rewrite it to make it more appropriate)? Huckelberry 13:49, 7 February 2011 (CST)
