Economica 100

Economica turned 100 in 2021.

Our aim to commemorate this is to publish 100 papers by former LSE Department of Economics students, and current and former faculty.

The Economica Centenary Conference launched this process and the papers from the conference, which will appear in the journal, will be part of the 100 we intend to publish.
