Virtual Issue: The History of REStud

Over the past 60 years the Review of Economic Studies has published some of the most path-breaking and influential work in economics. This virtual issues brings together some of these papers, reflecting the long tradition of the Review to publish the highest quality work in macroeconomics, microeconomics, applied economics and econometrics. For example, the issue bring together papers that have laid the foundations for public economics, theories of learning by doing, Nobel prize winning work on unemployment, explaining contractual structures in developing economies, empirical work related to estimating the production functions of firms, the identification of peer effects, the impacts of job training, the evolution of income distributions, and more recent work integrating insights from psychology into economic models of individual behaviour.
