Welcome to The Review of Economic Studies

The Review was founded in 1933 by a group of young British and American Economists. It is published quarterly by The Review of Economic Studies Ltd, whose objective is to encourage research in theoretical and applied economics, especially by young economists, and to publish the results in the Journal. The Review of Economic Studies is essential reading for economists. It is one of the core economics journals, consistently ranking among the top five titles.


Kjetil Storesletten, University of Oslo,  stepped down as Chairman of the Board and Christopher Bowdler, University of Oxford, stepped down as Business Manager, on June 30th. We would like to thank them for their service to the journal. New Chairman as of July 1st is Philipp Kircher, European University Institute and University of Edinburgh, and new Business Manager is Catherine M. Thomas, London School of Economics.

Veronica Guerrieri, University of Chicago, joined the Managing Editors on July 1st.
