Contemporary Economic Policy
2012 Best CEP Article Award Recipient
"Salary Cap Regulation in Professional Team Sports"
by Helmut M. Dietl, Egon Franck, Markus Lang, and Alexander Rathke
First published in 1982 as Contemporary Policy Issues, Contemporary Economic Policypublishes scholarly economic research and analysis on issues of vital concern to business, government, and other decision makers. Leading scholars, including four Nobel Laureates, are among CEP's authors. The objectives are to communicate results of high quality economic analysis to policymakers, focus high quality research and analysis on current policy issues of widespread concern, increase knowledge among economists of features of the economy key to understanding the impact of policy, and to advance methods of policy analysis.
We are interested in articles that will be widely read and cited, and economic analyses with an impact on policy choices, rather than papers that fill a narrow niche or are of parochial interest. All submissions are reviewed using the general criteria of quality, creativity, originality, accuracy, and contribution to policy choices. The categories of articles separate the audiences along a gradient of analytical content. CEP publishes economic analysis of policy issues, methods and results for policy analysis, and surveys.
