Launched in May 2011, the World Economics Association publishes 3 quarterly journals, a lengthy bi-monthly newsletter, and runs several online conferences a year. All this is free and instantly available to economists and others anywhere in the world. We want to keep WEA membership free for all its 10,904 members globally dispersed. Our two new journals already have huge readerships compared to most academic journals, and the Real-World Economics Review, with over a million copies of its papers downloaded per year, is now probably the world’s most read economics journal.
