The last sentence of the article:

Business, without an article, generally refers to the current state of a business or various businesses: "Business is good."

is rather difficult to understand, even for a native speaker. Overall the page could use some simplification, but the reference to "an article" seems unclear. I know what it means, but this is not the only phrase which uses "business" without an article before it. How about "He went into business for himself"? That is not referring to the current state of a business, etc. If we want to talk about where to use or not use articles in English (which is significantly different from in other languages such as Spanish), we should talk about it under article (which still doesn't exist) or another logical location, not here at "Business." I think the last sentence should be removed completely. --Cromwellt|talk 20:36, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
