Studies in Political Economy

The books in this series are occasional volumes sponsored by the Murphy Institute and Cambridge University Press, comprising original essays by leading scholars in the United States and other countries. Each volume considers one of the intellectual preoccupations or analytical procedures currently associated with the term “political economy.”

The goal of the series is to aid scholars and teachers committed to moving beyond the traditional boundaries of their disciplines in a common search for new insights and new ways of studying the political and economic realities of our time. The series is published with the support of the Tulane-Murphy Foundation.


PPE Journal

PPE Journal

With Sage Publications, the Murphy Institute’s Center for Ethics and Public Affairs sponsors PPE: A Journal of Politics, Philosophy & Economics.

Published four times annually, PPE aims to bring moral, economic and political theory to bear on the analysis, justification, and criticism of political and economic institutions and public policies.

The Editors are committed to publishing papers of high quality using various methodologies from a wide variety of normative perspectives. They seek to provide a distinctive forum for discussions and debates among philosophers, economists, and political scientists on such matters as constitutional design, property rights, distributive justice, the welfare state, egalitarianism, the morals of the market, democratic socialism, population ethics, and the evolution of norms.
