A candidate for deletion?

The intellectual level of this article seems to be more suitable for schoolchildren than for the undergraduate/graduate reader that Citizendium is intended to serve. It gives the misleading impression that the time value of money can be explained by a tautology and some elementary algebra. I am inclined to ask for its deletion on the grounds that it is duplicated by the discount rate article which is of a higher standard. Does anyone disagree? Nick Gardner 07:15, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Moreover, it is a barely changed WP import. However, deletion is not necessary. It can be blanked (preserving the history). amd link to discount rate until (perhaps) a better article is written. I'll do the blanking which could easily be reverted. --Peter Schmitt 00:42, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
