Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It has been twenty years since Ronald Coase claimed, in the proceedings of the Annual Meeting of the American Economic Association, that “When the majority of economists have changed, mainstream economists will acknowledge the importance of examining the economic system in the way [of new institutional economics] and will claim that they knew it all along.” Twenty years later, new institutional economics has nearly become a household name among “mainstream economists” and enriched economics by taking the institutional context of economic transactions into account.

To take stock of the progress of the field, Economies is inviting contributions for a Special Issue devoted to new institutional economics.

Submissions relating to all the facets of the field are welcome. Topics can cover, but are not limited to, the causes and determinants of democratic transitions, institutional quality, culture, religion, aid, international trade and development, and war. Contributions can be theoretical or empirical and use contemporary or historical data. Critical surveys are also welcome.
