    Aims and Scope

    The Economists' Voice (EV) is a non-partisan forum for economists to present innovative policy ideas or engaging commentary on the issues of the day.

    Although much of what economists write is "inside baseball" — written for a small audience of specialists — economists have much to contribute to the public debate on a wide range of policy issues. We believe that anyone concerned about the central issues of the day, whether they are students, policymakers, or other citizens, would benefit from hearing economists debate what should be done about problems from budget balancing to global development, from intellectual property to outsourcing, from health care reform to how to provide old age security.

    The Economists' Voice creates a forum for readable ideas and analysis by leading economists on vital issues of our day.

    EV, edited by Joseph Stiglitz, recipient of the 2001 Nobel Prize for Economics, together with Michael Cragg, Joseph Stiglitz, and Jeffrey Zwiebel, is the decade's most successful publishing innovation for professional economists. It was shortlisted for Best New Journal in the 2007 ALPSP/Charlesworth Awards. Its short, focused policy articles fill a gap between the op-ed pages of the newspaper and full-length journal articles. 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.

    Articles from The Economists' Voice have been prominently featured on the Op-Ed pages of The New York Times, The Washington Post, Salon.com, The Wall Street Journal's MarketWatch.com, and distributed by Project Syndicate to newspapers around the world. The Economists' Voice creates a non-partisan forum for readable ideas and analysis by leading economists on vital issues of our day.

    Article formats

We welcome submitted Columns from any professional economist. Letters to the editor are encouraged and may comment on any Column or Letter. Letters must be less than 300 words.

    • With regard to the May 17,2014 article Peering into the darkness, Freedom implies priviacy. Without privacy there is no freedom. Likewise, democracy implies transparency. It seems we are losing both.
