Kenneth J. Arrow Prizes in Theoretical Economics, Macroeconomics, and Economic Analysis & Policy

In order to reward excellent scholarship, The Berkeley Electronic Press is pleased to announce three new prizes: the Kenneth J. Arrow Prizes in Theoretical Economics, Macroeconomics, and Economic Analysis & Policy.

There will be three of each of these prizes awarded for a total of nine prizes. Each recipient will receive $5,000. To be eligible, articles must be submitted to one of the three families of B.E. Journals after January 1, 2005 and published in the Frontiers level. Frontiers of Theoretical Economics, Frontiers of Macroeconomics and Frontiers of Economic Analysis & Policy are among the most exclusive journals in economics. They publish only articles that could appear in a top 5 economics journal. Currently their acceptance rates are all less than 1% of submissions.

The Kenneth J. Arrow Prizes for Senior Faculty and for Junior Faculty continue to be awarded each year. For more information on these prizes, see www.bepress.com/arrowaward.html. Papers are eligible for both the field prizes and the general prizes. The prizes are named in honor of Kenneth J. Arrow, who shared the Nobel Prize in 1972 for his pioneering contributions to general equilibrium theory and welfare theory.
