The American Economist is a biannual peer-reviewed academic journal covering all subfields of economics first published in 1960. It is an official publication of Omicron Delta Epsilon, the International Honor Society in Economics, and produced on their behalf by Sage Publications. The editor-in-chief is Paul W. Grimes (Pittsburg State University).


The journal was first published in 1960 as the successor of The Journal of Omicron Chi Epsilon, which had been established in 1956 as a small student-managed annual periodical at the City College of New York. The American Economist was later produced at Harvard University, and over time became an academic journal publishing original research written and reviewed by professional economists. It became the official publication of Omicron Delta Epsilon in 1963 when the latter was formed from the merger of Omicron Chi Epsilon and Omicron Delta Gamma, two competing national honor societies in economics.

Omicron Delta Epsilon oversaw production and distribution of the journal from 1963 through 2015. Since then the journal has been published by SAGE Publishing. A history of the journal along with reprints of classic articles was published in commemoration the journal's first fifty-five years in the first SAGE-produced issue in March 2016.[1] The journal's historic backfile is archived by JSTOR. [2] The American Economist is widely known for publishing autobiographical articles by notable economists, which have been incorporated into collective volumes, [3] [4] and for its papers on economic education.
