Producing Economy, Society, and Public Policy

Economy, Society, and Public Policy includes the work of the CORE Team, who authored The Economy. Content has been coordinated by Samuel Bowles, Santa Fe Institute, Wendy Carlin, University College London, and Eileen Tipoe, University of Oxford and researcher for the CORE EQuSS project.

ESPP has benefitted from the contributions of interns, reviewers, and writers. We are especially grateful for the participation of colleagues from disciplines outside economics. Tim Phillips is the editor, and Stella Yarrow is the project manager.
