    Aims and Scope


    Comparative Economic Studies is devoted to the study of economic systems, those currently existing as well as systems that have existed in the past or that may exist only in theory. Economic systems consist of economic agents, institutions, incentives, information flows, culture, historical legacies and policies. Empirical, theoretical and policy papers dealing with all or some subset of these elements are within the scope of the journal's interests. Comparative Economic Studies is particularly interested in studies that investigate how economic systems respond to crisis, to economic transition and to gradual structural change brought about by globalization or changes in demographics, technology, politics, the environment, etc. Also of special interest is the analysis of the effectiveness of policy measures in different economic systems, particularly studies of policies dealing with current challenges faced by different economic systems. We welcome both studies that are explicitly comparative as well as studies of single countries or sub-systems.
