UPDATE Sterling work by @ale and there are at present no Open Qs with this tag, so the issue is largely 'moot'.
There is one Closed Q that should disappear off WA within a fortnight.
Tag finance lacks a Usage guide and has
5 6 followers but is currently applied to 7 0 Open question s.
Regarding Shog9’s criteria for burnination, summarised as:
- Does it describe the contents of the questions to which it is applied? - Is it unambiguous? - Is the concept described even on-topic for the site? - Does the tag add any meaningful information to the post? - Does it mean the same thing in all common contexts?
IMO the As are, in order: No, No, No, No, No.
It is a topic with experts (eg see the SE sites: Personal Finance & Money, Quantitative Finance) but it appears usage has had little connection with either of those.
Would anyone care to speak in its defence in a trial for its life?
