Economic Policy has earned a reputation around the world as the one publication that always identifies current and emerging policy topics early. It discusses key international issues when they matter and is invaluable for keeping track of important topics.Economic Policy gives you hot topics, from the experts. Papers are specially commissioned from first-class economists and experts in the policy field. The editors are all based at top European economic institutions and each paper is discussed by a panel of distinguished economists. Their discussions are published at the end of each paper. This unique approach guarantees incisive debate and alternative interpretations of the evidence.
