The Yale Journal of Economics showcases outstanding undergraduate work in the field of economics. Each semester undergraduates in economics courses write final papers, some based on unique research and many full of original and meaningful insights. But these papers are often read by only a single professor, even though their conclusions could interest large numbers of students, professors, and professionals. The Journal, run entirely by Yale undergraduates, provides a forum for students’ innovative ideas to contribute to economic discourse at Yale and in the larger academic community.
The Journal published its first issue in Spring 2013. We are now accepting submissions for the Fall 2013 issue.
