Pardon me if I come across as know-it-all-sh, I only come by to evaluate and to provide ways I hope to, and would recommend, building out this article to make it as good as it truly can be. This article has a strong neutral tone, and provides the reader a reasonable, dictionary-level introduction to this topic. I would, and seek to, improve it by reformatting it into a more segmented project (similar to the article discussing labor strike actions), discussing the concept more in-depth, looking at a few examples through history, and possible responses to such action. I would also hope to improve and see improved the quality of the sourcing. Currently the two sources are a blog and an Independent article whose link currently "404s". The 2008 recession in the United States saw a fair amount of discussion of this topic in the press and academic journals, I would hope to utilize these articles in beefing up the article's sources. Thank you for your time. Jdicke16 (talk) 02:02, 10 February 2019 (UTC)


Upon further research, either this page plagiarizes Investopedia, or Investopedia is plagiarizing this page in their discussion of capital strikes. As the section of their capital strike article (sub-section Capital Strikes and Government) is word-for-word the opening to this article. I actually believe there is a chance Investopedia is doing the plagiarizing, as their page was most recently updated in June 2018, and this page has been phrased roughly in this manner since it's creation in January 2006. With that said, I cannot say for sure whether either party is at fault. Jdicke16 (talk) 02:45, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
