Research in Economics

Economics studies social relationships pertaining to producing and allocating resources.

Economists produce and read:

  • articles in peer reviewed scholarly journals reporting results of experiments and analyses - these are the main focus of most work in economics.
  • working papers - pre-published reports of ongoing work, for feedback and to share preliminary results.
  • data - of many types and from many sources; economics is a data-intensive field.
  • books - broader overviews of topics, often for non-specialists.
