NPOV?[edit]

What is "extreme"? By adding this descriptive to the template we are injecting POV about what is not extreme wealth verses what is acceptable wealth. E.g., a little wealth might be okay (for each of us), but at some point too much wealth is not okay. Where is the cut-off? I submit that the un-definable "extreme" description hobbles this template. (Recognizing that this template has few watchers, I simply submit the comment for consideration. If my comment does not stimulate reply I shall submit my concerns to another WP forum.) – S.

Hmmmm, good points, S. Rich. How about calling it "Wealth" or better still "Economic inequality"? Anna Frodesiak (talk) 08:06, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
I don't like using "inequality" in the title because it is a buzz word for those who advocate redistribution. "Wealth" too is laden with certain implications. "Economic disparity" might be better, but is vague. How about saying "Wealth and poverty"? Then the various aspects of poverty can be woven into it. – S. Rich (talk) 18:31, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
Adding "poverty" might step on the toes of some other navboxes. See the bottom of Poverty. I'm not sure what to do. We need more views from others, I think. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 18:34, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
