Economic & Financial Review

Journal Aims and Scope:

The economics profession has divided itself into three groups: (i) the public sector economists (ii) the private sector economists and (iii) academic economics with each group tending to have its own ethos and beliefs.

While there is one economics discipline, each class of economists has its own ideologies, modes of thinking and methodologies. In practice, there is little interaction or close links among the three. Economic and Financial Review aims to provide a medium for enabling and enhancing communications among the three groups.

The journal will include contributions from all sides of the profession - portraying the state of the art as well as presenting the new thinking, developments, directions, emerging techniques and their applications in the area of economics and finance. The journal will address issues related to decisions, timing and implementation of alternative policies at government level. It will also concern itself with the problems, consequences and necessary steps for the reversal of a given policy when it fails to produce the desired results.

The journal, in addition, addresses the difficulties facing the market decision makers, in effect, "the policy-takers" who need to incorporate into their forecasts government actions.

Finally, it is intended that the periodical will aid in removing the isolation that currently exists among the different groups so that the new theories that are formulated will be more in tune with the real workings of the economy, and guide the practitioners.
