Special Issue on the Economic Effects of Minimum Wages in Germany

Guest Editors: Alfredo R. Paloyo, Sandra Schaffner, Christoph M. Schmidt
This special issue of the German Economic Review addresses one of the most contentious areas of modern labor economics: the economic effects of statutory minimum wages.

Special Issue on the Economics of Crime
Volume 13, Issue 4, November 2012
Guest Editors: Horst Entorf, Jens Ludwig, Christian Traxler
This Special Issue compiles six innovative empirical studies on the economics of crime. They distinguish themselves from much of the work on crime topics in other social science disciplines by their focus on randomized or ‘natural’ experiments to identify causal relationships between potential determinants of crime and criminal behavior, or between crime and its potential social consequences.
