Socio-Economic Review

Socio-Economic Review (SER) is the official journal of SASE. It is part of a broader movement in the social sciences that returns to the economy’s socio-political foundations. Devoted to advancing socio-economics, SER deals with the analytical, political and moral questions arising at the intersection of economy and society. Articles in SER explore how the economy is or should be governed by social relations, institutional rules, political decisions, and cultural values. SER considers the different ways in which the economy affects society, such as by breaking up old institutional forms and giving rise to new ones. The scope of the journal is deliberately broad, and thus opens the debate to new variations on its general theme. Its peer-review editorial structure allows editors to engage intellectually with authors and their submission.

As of January 2021, SER is online-only.

SER Cafe

SASE is proud to sponsor SER Café, a new online, real-time discussion forum where members of the audience can virtually meet and interact with the authors of one or two papers recently published in Socio-Economic Review. The audience is expected to have read the articles.

The first SER Café of 2023 will be held on Thursday, February 9 at 4pm UTC (11am US Eastern/8am US Pacific/5pm Central European).


We will be speaking with Ekaterina Svetlova (University of Twente) and Akos Rona-Tas (UC San Diego) about the relationship between technology, economy, and society.


The authors will briefly discuss their respective SER articles, “AI Meets Narrative: The State of Research on Expectation Formation in Sociology and Economics” (2021) and “Predicting the Future: Art and Algorithms” (2020).

We will follow the discussion with an extended Q & A session.


Please register in advance to join us for this timely conversation!

SER on Tap

Hosted by Jacob Bromberg, SER on Tap is a podcast produced by the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics to expand on and draw out implications of recent articles published in Socio-Economic Review through interviews with the authors.

Jonathan Mijs (Boston University) discusses his article “The paradox of inequality: income inequality and belief in meritocracy go hand in hand,” which explores the baffling paradox by which countries faced with growing inequality experience less popular concern regarding inequality than do more egalitarian nations.

David Hope (King’s College London) and Julian Limberg (King’s College London) discuss their article “The Economic Consequences of Major Tax Cuts for the Rich.” The article considers the dramatic decline in taxes on the rich across advanced democracies over the past 50 years and seeks to estimate the average effects of major tax reforms on income inequality, economic growth, and unemployment.
