Andy Atkeson: New Co-Editor at the JPE

The UCLA Department of Economics wants to congratulate Professor Andy Atkeson for recently being appointed co-editor of the Journal of Political Economy. Editors at the JPE are typically from the University of Chicago, so the appointment of Professor Atkeson is particularly unusual, and an acknowledgement of his standing in the profession and his editorial judgement.

One of the oldest and most prestigious journals in economics, the Journal of Political Economy presents significant and essential scholarship in economic theory and practice. The journal publishes highly selective and widely cited analytical, interpretive, and empirical studies in a number of areas, including monetary theory, fiscal policy, labor economics, development, microeconomic and macroeconomic theory, international trade and finance, industrial organization, and social economics.
