the Journal of Australian Political Economy
Since 1977, the Journal of Australian Political Economy (JAPE) has disseminated political economic alternatives to orthodox economics, exploring critiques of contemporary capitalism and fostering debates about the interactions between capital, labour, ecology and the state in the Australian context.
In addition to presenting high-quality, peer-reviewed articles on a range of political economic issues, a prime concern for the journal is to reach as wide an audience as possible. In turn, all current and previous JAPE articles are freely accessible on this site. In addition, materials relating to the annual E.L. 'Ted' Wheelwright Memorial Lecture, forthcoming conferences and links to other Australian and international political economic organisations are also available. A regularly-updated blog incorporating real-time commentary from JAPE contributors on contemporary issues has now also been activated. Please check-back regularly for future news and updates.
