Aims and Scope

The European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies: Intervention (EJEEP) is a double blind peer-reviewed journal which serves as a forum for studies in macroeconomic theory, economic institutions and economic policies. The managing editors aim for productive debates involving one or more variants of heterodox economics, and invite contributions acknowledging the pluralism of research approaches. The submission of both theoretical and empirical work is encouraged. The managing editors contend that a wide variety of institutional and social factors shape economic life and economic processes. Only a careful study and integration of such factors into economics will lead to theoretical progress and to competent economic policy recommendations. This was clearly demonstrated by the inadequacy of orthodox economics, based on neoclassical foundations, to provide suitable explanations and responses to recent financial and economic crises.

The roots of the EJEEP go back to 2004, when the first issue of Intervention. Journal of Economics was published. In 2008 the journal was re-launched as Intervention. European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies. With the change of publisher in 2013 it has since become the European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies: Intervention (EJEEP).

From 2023, EJEEP is published as a scholar-led Diamond Open Access journal in cooperation with Open Library Economics (OLEcon), an initiative of ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics.

Introducing special themes

*********************************

Interventions: Interviews with unconventional economics

EJEEP is one of the few journals that publishes interviews with renowned economists. The journal began this tradition in 2004 and since then has published two interviews per year with leading and well-known experts from the heterodox camp. The interviews contain both biographic information and references to the interviewees’ contributions to economic debates.

Interviews of Interest

‘I see my research and my teaching as trying to understand the world in which we live, to paraphrase Keynes’ — Interview with Steven Fazzari  - Eckhard Hein and Gennaro Zezza
'I think it is important to speak multiple languages theoretically in order to communicate to different types of people'Interview with Elissa Braunstein - Yannis Dafermos and Torsten Niechoj

‘The core idea is that income distribution is always the result of a conflict of powers among social classes’Interview with Antonella Stirati - Gennaro Zezza
‘The trading behaviour in financial markets and the impacts on the real economy became the theme of my life’ Interview with Stephan Schulmeister - Eckhard Hein and Torsten Niechoj

‘It is clear that this kind of deregulated capitalism will not survive in the end’ Interview with Hansjörg Herr - Eckhard Hein

*********************************

Global Value Chains

The Covid-19 pandemic, but also other crises and challenges, have shown the importance of resilient global value chains for production in the Global North, but also the dependence of countries in the Global South on these global value chains and their limited policy space to react to such crises. Comparative country studies and theoretical reflections on global value chains published in EJEEP help to understand value chain-related responses to crises and offer policy recommendations for responses to future crises.

*********************************

Monetary Circuit Theory

The Monetary Circuit Theory (MCT) goes back predominantly to the writings of Augusto Graziani and Alain Parguez. It has undergone numerous further developments since then. The core idea is to model the creation of money as endogenous to the needs of the economy, with a sequential analysis starting with banks granting loans to firms, so as to cover their production costs and distribute income to households (initial finance). Firms can then only service their banking debts through their sales and their acquisition of the saving of households by means of issuing debt and equity (final finance).
