New issue of The New School Economic Review (NSER)

Last week the 8th volume of the New School Economic Review (NSER) was released! This was a huge accomplishment for us after having worked on this issue for a whole year. The issue had a record number of submissions, so we have had to coordinate with a growing number of reviewers to make sure we gave each submission a fair assessment. We’re very pleased with the final outcome, so please take a look! This is the second volume I have worked on as Executive Editor (also volume 7), but I am now stepping down in order to give others the opportunity to do this job as well as to give myself more time to work on my own research.  You can still submit to Vol. 9: The deadline is March 15th!
