The Brazilian Journal of Political Economy (BJPE) is a peer-reviewed journal published since January 1981. It sees economics in its classical sense, as a historical-deductive political economy, not as hypothetic-deductive economics. The Journal is interested in papers on development macroeconomics, on the recent history of economic thought, and on papers discussing the Brazilian or the Latin American economies.
Theoretically, the journal is associated to Classical Developmentalism, Post-Keynesian Economics, and New Developmentalism. In relation to the later, it is interested in papers that either offer new contributions, or are critical, or apply its hypothesis to the analysis of national economies, or compare New Developmentalism with the two former theories from which it is originated. It is not interested in the comparison of just policies without the corresponding theory.
