On 30 June 2015, Economic Policy bid farewell to Philip Lane, who served 6 years as Managing Editor to the journal. On Philip’s contributions, the Co-Chairs remarked:
“Philip has been a key part of the Economic Policy team for many years. As author, panelist, and most recently Managing Editor, he has devoted his scholarship and energy to making our review the go-to reference for thoughtful policy analysis.” ~ George de Menil
“With all his research and policy activities, Philip has given Economic Policy high priority for many years, and the journal has benefited greatly from this deep commitment.” ~ Richard Portes
“Philip Lane was a great force behind Economic Policy’s sustained high academic standards and policy relevance. He was a dedicated, energetic managing editor who will be greatly missed” ~ Hans-Werner Sinn
Philip is succeeded by Andrea Ichino, whose term commenced on 1 January 2015.
In further changes, Economic Policy welcomes new Senior Editor Kevin Hjortshøj O’Rourke, as successor to Richard Baldwin. We are delighted to have Kevin on board and look forward to continuing the journal’s growth in strength and impact with his guidance.
