First Issue of Quantitative Economics

In July 2009, Quantitative Economics started receiving submissions. The purpose of the new journal of the Econometric Society is to provide a new platform for rigorous applied work with a strong theoretical background. Our definition of applied work is wide and includes theoretical work (both in economic and econometric theory) that has direct applied implications. The new journal wants to cover all the main fields in applied economics, including labour economics, industrial organization, development economics, public finance, experimental economics, macroeconomics as well as computational economics. We are pleased to announce the publication of the first issue of QE. The issue will contain the following papers:
