Journal of Economic Perspectives

The Journal of Economic Perspectives (JEP) aims to bridge the gap between the general interest business and financial press and standard academic journals of economics. 

The journal publishes articles that will serve several goals: to synthesize and integrate lessons learned from active lines of economic research; to provide economic analysis of public policy issues; to encourage cross-fertilization of ideas among the fields of thinking; to offer readers an accessible source for state-of-the-art economic thinking; to suggest directions for future research; to provide insights and readings for classroom use; and to address issues relating to the economics profession. Articles appearing in the journal are normally solicited by the editors and associate editors. Proposals for topics and authors should be directed to the journal office.

All issues of the Journal of Economic Perspectives (1987 - present) are publicly accessible online at no charge, compliments of the American Economic Association.

Kindle and other e-reader versions of JEP are also available to download for FREE at the AEA website on each JEP issue page.  Alternatively, for instant wireless delivery, purchase JEP at the Kindle Store!
