American Economic Journals Discussion Forum
In order to encourage and facilitate the exchange of ideas, the American Economic Journals offer an online discussion forum for all published articles.
Here you can discuss, ask questions, or generally debate anything related to the published material. To ease navigation and to give focus to the discourse, there is a separate discussion forum for each article. AEA members and authors of articles published in the American Economic Journals can post comments and links to materials such as powerpoint presentations, working papers, and datasets.
To make a comment or post a link, go to the articles page for the paper on which you want to make a comment and select "Post a Comment on This Article" under the heading AEJ Discussion Forum.
To read comments on an article, go to the articles page for that paper and select "View Comments on This Article," also under the heading AEJ Discussion Forum. The most recent comment will appear first.
