Announcing Vox

The Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) today launches Vox, a new policy portal featuring research-based analysis and commentary from Europe’s leading economists.

The primary intended audience is economists – and users of economic research – in governments, international organisations, academia and the private sector as well as journalists and commentators specialising in economics, finance and business.

Vox aims to enrich the economic policy debate in Europe and beyond. On the supply side, Vox will make it easier for serious researchers to contribute. On the demand side, Vox will make the knowledge of researchers more accessible to the public.

Among the first columns:

  • Saving Africa: improved trade preferences should be high on the agenda – Paul Collier and Tony Venables
  • Combating child labour: reducing rich countries’ protectionist policies will be far more effective than bans – Guillermo de la Dehesa
  • Inflation targeting has made exchange rate crises a thing of the past – Andrew Rose
  • Massive growth of foreign exchange reserves is an insurance policy for developing countries – Charles Wyplosz
  • Unwinding global imbalances: likely effects on the European economy – Philip Lane and Gian Maria Milesi-Ferretti
