World Economics Association

The World Economics Association (WEA) has been in existence since 16 May 2011. The WEA is established to increase the relevance, breadth and depth of economics, and to free the economics profession from the dominance of any one country or bloc of countries. Its key features are:

  • worldwide membership and governance,
  • inclusiveness with respect to diverse theoretical perspectives and related disciplines, and
  • the study of the world’s diverse economies.

The World Economics Association will publish three quarterly online journals (with print copies available for a fee) and hold online conferences. Subscriptions to the journals and participation in the conferences are free to members. Membership in the WEA is also free. To join takes only one minute. You can join now by going to http://worldeconomicsassociation.org/index.php and entering name, country and email address.

The WEA welcomes, as members, non-economists interested in economics and its relationship with their own field of interest.

To this end, the WEA will initially publish online three quarterly journals and host online conferences. Online subscriptions are free to members (a fee will be charged for print copies). The anticipated size of the WEA's membership means that its journals will have one of the largest readerships of any in the world.
