About Us

Mission Statement

The Economics Review At NYU is an undergraduate organization that publishes student articles, essays and research papers in an online and print publication. Our content focuses on economic theory, policy and associated fields such as law, business, and politics. Our goal is to provide all interested NYU students with the opportunities to conduct research, get published and advance future career prospects. The student-led editorial staff works with in-house and freelance writers to improve research and writing skills and to produce content that will encourage debate and awareness among undergraduates. We encourage not only the ambitious students of Economics to contribute to the Review, but also all students, regardless of their school, field or degree level.
