    Special Issue on Cultural Economics


    Cultural economics studies the relation of culture to economic outcomes. Programmatic issues include whether and how much culture matters as to economic outcomes and what its relation is to institutions. Applications include the study of religion, social norms, social identity, fertility, beliefs in redistributive justice, ideology, hatred, terrorism, trust, and the culture of economics. Methods include case studies and theoretical and empirical modeling of cultural transmission within and across social groups.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on cultural economics. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Culture and economic performance
    • Cultural consequences of markets
    • Social economics
    • Religion, politics and economy
    • Cultural influences of investing behavior
    • Country risk and cultural distance

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Cultural Economics” should be chosen during your submission.
