The UCLA Undergraduate Journal of Economics is an academic journal managed by undergraduate economics students at the University of California, Los Angeles.

The journal seeks to motivate young economists to take on those significant issues at an earlier point in their career – while they are still at the undergraduate level.  We believe that the field of economics will move forward at an order of magnitude faster if economists engage in original and significant research at an earlier point in their careers.
