Economía is the journal of the Latin American and Caribbean Economic Association ( LACEA ). It was launched in 2000, and with GDN's support, LACEA has been publishing 2 issues of the journal 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, Economía 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.
Calls for papers are issued twice a year (Spring and Fall). A set of submitted papers are accepted for presentation during our panel meetings held twice a year, one in conjunction with the LACEA conference and one in some other place. Presentation during the panel meeting does not guarantee publication in the journal. Based on discussions during the panel, some papers continue a standard revise and resubmit process and others are rejected for publication.
Our meetings are possible thanks to the generous donations of our sponsors: Global Development Network (GDN), The World Bank, The InterAmerican Development Bank, LACEA, Fedesarrollo, Yale University, Universidad de los Andes, and The David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard University ( DRCLAS ).
