Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of Economies will include papers on economic policy and its effects in the Great Recession. Fiscal Policy and Monetary Policy have followed different patterns during the Great Recession and across countries. Moreover, an intense debate has emerged about the role of fiscal and monetary policy in the economic crisis, and the adequate mix between State and market is being analyzed when defining the institutional structure of governance of the XXI Century. The debate of the effects of fiscal and monetary policy is broad, and it includes different experiences since the US and the EU until the developing countries, for example. The papers can be theoretical or empirical, and the approach can be based on case study, comparative or institutional analysis, theoretical contributions, historical perspective or empirical work, among others. Papers from different schools of thought would be accepted too.
