Cuadernos de Economía (Latin American Journal of Economics) has been published by the Instituto de Economía of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile for over forty years.

The main objective of this journal is to stimulate the production and interchange of theoretical and empirical academic articles and notes, both in English and Spanish, on issues related to economic development, public policies, and applied economics, with emphasis on Latin America.

An outstanding characteristic of Cuadernos de Economía is that most of the articles published in its forty years of existence have reflected economic issues of interest in Latin American economies. This characteristic, in addition to being one of the oldest journals of economics in the region, led the Editorial Board to attach the qualifying “Latin American Journal of Economics” to the name of the journal.

The journal is published in May and November of each year.
