It provides a forum for discussion of public policy of interest to an international readership.
“It’s an honor to follow in JPubE’s tradition of excellence, starting all the way back with founder Tony Atkinson.” said Friedman. “Wojciech and I are committed to making the Journal more responsive. I’m also especially thrilled to mentor the next generation of scholars as co-editors.”
Friedman’s appointment follows four years on the Editorial Board of the American Economic Journal.
