There's a world-war-2 with eight questions that should probably be made a synonym for ww2. I'd suggest it myself but, as is usual for tag synonyms, I don't have the reputation or answer score ...

What distinction are we making in the 'economics' and 'economy' tags?

I'm looking at two particular tags on this site: economics and economy. Perusing the list of questions for each, I'm not seeing any clear difference between them. Should these two tags be merged?
