Dear readers and contributors of the Latin American Journal of Economics:

This letter is to inform you that we have made the difficult decision of closing the "Latin American Journal of Economics". The last issue of LAJE will be published during the second semester of this year.

We want to thank you all for your contributions, and we especially want to thank the Editors of our journal (listed here); without their valuable contribution this journal would not have had as successful a run as it did.

Sincerely,

Claudio Sapelli
Chairman
Economics Department
Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile



The Latin American Journal of Economics (LAJE)--formerly Cuadernos de Economía-- has been published by the Instituto de Economía of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile since 1963 (Cuadernos de Economía 1963-2010; LAJE 2011-2016).
