Joe Jackson

Senior Editor (Economics)


As an economics editor at Princeton University Press, I am honored to be in one of the field’s most exciting positions. I enjoy knowing the people and work that have shaped the discussions and thinking behind an enormous range of topics that influence all our lives. Books I have worked on and hope to acquire address topics ranging from jobs, financial markets, global trade, and health policy to the history of how societies have organized and developed, as well as the way we, as individuals and modern societies, make our own choices about how to generate and distribute resources more fairly and effectively for all—and how we decide what that actually means.

At the Press, I’ve been lucky to acquire and help publish such fascinating and influential books as Dani Rodrik’s Straight Talk on Trade, Nicola Gennaioli and Andrei Shleifer’s A Crisis of Beliefs, and Kip Viscusi’s Pricing Lives, and I look forward to working on many more that will have their own impact in unique ways.
