Message from Gary Hansen, coordinating editor of the Review of Economic
1. Lucas and Kocherlakota join RED Editorial Board
Some notable changes are about to be made to the Editorial Board of the
Review of Economic Dynamics. Robert E. Lucas, Jr. (University of Chicago,
1995 Nobel Laureate) has agreed to serve as an Editor and Narayana
Kocherlakota (University of Minnesota) will serve as an Associate Editor.
We are extremely pleased that these very distinguished economists will be
joining us and helping us to insure that RED's initial success will continue
to be strengthened and expanded. David K. Levine (UCLA), who has served as
an Editor since the journal was started, will be stepping down. Levine has
been very important in helping to establish RED as high quality publication
outlet. His work for RED has included co-editing the Special Issue on
Dynamic Games that appeared in April 2000.
2. Web Based SED Membership and Journal Subscription Form
Academic Press has been preparing an interactive web site that we will be
introducing shortly so that people can apply for 2002 membership in the
Society for Economic Dynamics and to subscribe to RED. The price will be
$88 and includes both SED membership and a one-year subscription to the
Society's journal. Links to this website will be provided on
www.economicdynamics.org (the Society's website), as well on the
registration pages for the 2002 SED Meetings in New York. Our hope is that
this website will improve the efficiency and accuracy with which journal
subscriptions for members of the Society are maintained.
3. 2002 will be a "Special" year
We have three special issues planned for 2002 (this is backlog, not steady
state). The January issue (Vol. 5 No. 1), which is now available, is on
Great Depressions of the Twentieth Century. Timothy J. Kehoe and Edward C.
Prescott edited this issue. The 2002 Ely Lecture given by Ed Prescott at
the ASSA Meetings in Atlanta was based substantially on material from this
The April 2002 issue, edited by Boyan Jovanovic, will be on the "New
Economy." This issue will feature papers presented at a conference held
this past November at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York on "Productivity
Growth: A New Era?" as well as a selection of other related papers.
Finally, the July 2002 issue will be on "Macroeconomic Perspectives on
Families and Inequality," and will contain a selection of papers presented
at a conference on this topic held at New York University last October.
This conference is the first of an annual series of conferences to be
sponsored by the Review of Economic Dynamics and the C.V. Starr Center at
NYU. Jeremy Greenwood, Raquel Fernández and José-Víctor Ríos-Rull organized
the conference and are editing the special issue of RED.
4. RED is Indexed
Effective with Volume 4, Number 1, the Review of Economic Dynamics has been
selected for coverage in ISI (Institute for Scientific Information)
indexing services. The journal is now indexed in the Social Sciences
Citation Index, ISI Alerting Services, Current Contents/Social and
Behavioral Sciences, as well as other ISI outlets and RePEc. Many people
have asked us about this, so we are happy to report that RED's inclusion
in these services is now official.
