Journal of Economic Growth is a quarterly magazine that brings to people the views and analysis of eminent economists on the subject of economic growth. The magazine also brings to light the policies and reforms that are needed to propel our economy further. The magazine also discusses different topics such as the global economic crisis, the impact of trade and other factors that have an impact on the direction of the economy. This is one of the best mediums through which one can express his/her views on issues concerning economic development. Some of the prominent economists who have contributed articles to the journal are Robert Kaplan, Authors; Kenneth Rogoff, Editors and William Taylor, contributing editor.
This is a free and open market for publishing economic articles. Anyone can write in the journals provided that they adhere to certain guidelines. The Journal of Economic Growth has various types of memberships. One can become a full member by paying a nominal fee and by contributing an article each month for a stipulated period of one year. The other type of membership is known as the associate editor or the non-associate editor.
There are many people who feel that the Journal of Economic Growth should not be dominated by a particular section. They feel that such a division would create disharmony. There is no chance for consensus decision making in this section. For example, there are sections working on Finance, Business, Economics, Real Estate etc. Such a divisionalism might create a situation where different points of view dominate.
It is believed that the Journal of Economic Growth could become a truly national newspaper if it were allowed. If there is a common point of view, then all the editors and contributors would be honest and not try to promote their own interests. There are people who are on the editorial board of the journal and have a personal stake in promoting particular policies, and some others have an interest in economics only so they can write about it.
Some of those who are against the editorial board of the Journal of Economic Growth think that all newspapers and magazines should do exactly the same thing. It is a good idea to have an editorial board, but in such a case it might not work out too well. For example, a magazine that are strictly business oriented and has a sole editorial board may not be very successful. There are many other mixed cases in the history of publishing and the publishing industry in general, and it is likely that the current trend will continue to change.
The economic growth of the country has changed dramatically over the past few years. The fall in commodity prices and the rising of prices on imported goods have created a . . . . . . sense of deflation. This means that people are spending less than before and saving more for the future. In view of this, there is no doubt that we are now seeing the start of a recovery from a recession, which is expected to last until the end of the year 2021.
