ObjectiveThe Economists' Voice (EV) is a non-partisan forum for economists to present innovative policy ideas.
Economists have much to contribute to the public debate on a wide range of policy issues. Anyone concerned about the economic policy challenges of today, whether they are students, policymakers, or other citizens, would benefit from being involved in economists’ policy-oriented debate. Monetary policy, fiscal policy, trade, exchange rate policy, development policy, labor market policy, and regulation as well as health care and pension reform are among the most important fields of economic policy discussions.
The Economists' Voice creates a forum for readable analysis by leading economists on vital economic policy issues of our day. The focus is on the clear verbal presentation of important evidence-based arguments for a broad readership. Empirical papers on policy-relevant issues are also welcome.
The Economists’ Voice was shortlisted for Best New Journal in the 2007 ALPSP/Charlesworth Awards. Its focused policy articles fill a gap between the op-ed pages of the newspaper and journal articles in theoretical journals. Contributors include seven Nobel Prize winners, five past chairs of the President's Council of Economic Advisors, public intellectuals like Paul Krugman and Richard Posner, and a veritable "Who's Who" of modern economic theory and policy.
Article formatsTwo types of articles are accepted. First, policy papers up to 10,000 words, which are subject to a double-blind referee process and contribute to the scientific debate on important policy issues. Second, short articles for our policy forum, between 600 – 3000 words. They contain a deeper analysis than a newspaper article/comment but are of comparable general interest.
