Association for Comparative Economic Studies

Website: http://acesecon.org/

The purpose of the Association for Comparative Economic Studies (ACES) is to promote scholarly exchange among persons interested in comparative studies of economic systems, planning, and economic development and to further the growth of systematic knowledge in these areas by facilitating research, instruction, and publication. We meet annually at the meetings of the Allied Social Sciences Association, where we organize a total of 9 sessions dealing with comparative economics, and we have occasional sessions at regional meetings and in Europe. 

ACES also sponsors and edits two well-known journals, Comparative Economic Studies, edited by Jeffrey Miller of University of Delaware, and The Journal of Comparative Economics, edited by John Bonin of Wesleyan University. Members receive web access to these journals as well as the hard copy versions as part of their membership.
