Review of Economic Design explores the art and science of inventing, analyzing, and testing economic, social, and political institutions and mechanisms.

The journal applies normative and positive economics and the strategic analysis of game theory, using novel ideas for designing and assembling diverse legal-economic instruments. Among these instruments are constitutions and other assignments of rights; mechanisms for allocation or regulation; tax and incentive schemes; contract forms; voting and other choice aggregation procedures; markets; auctions; and a variety of organizational forms.

These designs, the methods of analysis, along with comparative assessments of the performance of known economic systems and implemented designs are all important components of the journal.

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
