Economia is the journal of the Latin American and Caribbean Economic Association. Since 2000, with GDN´s support, LACEA has been publishing 2 issues of the journal. The journal consistently published articles from some of the world’s leading economists, as well as from many of today’s rising Latin American economists. Members of LACEA automatically receive biannual issues of Economia which is published in the spring and fall of each year.
Modeled after the Brookings Papers on Economic Activity and published by the Brookings Press, Economia is a policy journal --that is, one in which new theories or techniques are applied to policy questions, and not simply presented for their own sake. We seek papers on issues that are both at the forefront of the policy agenda and of broad interest to countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. We aim for the highest standards of theoretical and statistical rigor, but will only publish papers that are written in a style and language that makes them accessible to policymakers.
