for the public understanding of economics and entrepreneurship


Economic Affairs is a peer reviewed journal published by the Vinson Centre at the University of Buckingham and the Institute of Economic Affairs, in collaboration with Hesperides University and Francisco Marroquin University, through academic publisher Wiley. It is edited by Prof. Len Shackleton. For almost forty years, the journal has published original work by hundreds of authors broadly sharing our approach to classical liberal political economy. It has a particularly strong international focus. Economic Affairs was launched by Arthur Seldon and the IEA in 1980.

The journal is indexed by Scopus and is part of the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). It has published a wide range of authors from around the world, including a number of Nobel Prize winners, but it has a focus on non-mathematical approaches to economic analysis.
