How to get published in ‘top’ economics journals

Lars Syll

“By the early 1980s it was already common knowledge among people I hung out with that the only way to get non-crazy macroeconomics published was to wrap sensible assumptions about output and employment in something else, something that involved rational expectations and inter-temporal stuff and made the paper respectable. And yes, that conscious knowledge shaped the kinds of papers we wrote. ” – Paul Krugman

More or less says it all, doesn’t it?

And for those of you who do not want to play according these sickening hypocritical rules, there’s at least one good alternative — Real World Economics Review.
