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.


We are excited to announce that Kurt Mitman has been appointed as Joint Managing Editor with effect from 1st December 2019. Dirk Krueger will step down as Joint Managing Editor on 31st January 2020.

The 2019 Restud Tour, hosted by London School of Economics, KU Leuven and Sciences Po, was a great success.
