Congratulations on the publication of the Spring 2014 Massachusetts Undergraduate Journal of Economics (MUJE)!

The MUJE provides a forum for undergraduate students to publish high-quality research and essays in economics. The inaugural issue was published in Spring 2013. The Undergraduate Economics Club (UEC) and the Economics Department publish the MUJE. It is organized and run entirely by undergraduate students. The Department provides technical assistance and financial support and we are grateful to our Economics Alums for additional financial support. For more information on MUJE....
