New Co-Editors


The Journal of Economic Insight has new editors for 2018.  Christopher Douglas, University of Michigan – Flint, and Joshua Lewer, Bradley University, have taken over the reins as co-editors of the journal from David Hakes, University of Northern Iowa, who served as editor of the journal for more than 20 years.  Our new co-editors look forward to building off David’s legacy and continue the journal’s commitment to publishing quality research.  We thank David for his longtime service to the journal and are excited for the changes to come. 

New website for the journal


The Journal of Economic Insight has a new home.  Over the next several months we will be digitally archiving all of the journal's past content, which will be accessible to members and our library subscribers online. 

In the near future one will also be able to make article submission via our website as well.
