The National Tax Association is proud to announce the appointment of Andrew Samwick and Caroline Weber to the position of co-editors of the National Tax Journal. Samwick and Weber will replace long-time editors Stacy Dickert-Conlin and William Gentry in January 2023.
Samwick and Weber were selected after an open call for editors was put forth by the Board of Directors of the National Tax Association. James Mackie, President of the NTA, led the selection committee. “I speak on behalf of the entire selection committee: we’re thrilled with the selection of Andrew and Caroline. Together, they will lead the flagship journal of the NTA to new heights. We cannot thank Bill and Stacy enough for their incredible leadership in making the National Tax Journal what it is today.”
Samwick and Weber had this to say about their selection, “we are grateful to the NTA for the opportunity to serve as editors of the National Tax Journal. Fiscal policy challenges – from local to global – continue to abound. We look forward to both theoretical and empirical submissions that analyze and inform all aspects of tax and expenditure policy.”
Published since 1948, the quarterly National Tax Journal disseminates high quality original research on governmental tax and expenditure policies. Articles include economic, theoretical, and empirical analyses of tax and expenditure issues with an emphasis on policy implications. Most issues include an NTJ Forum, which consists of invited papers by leading scholars that examine in depth a single current tax or expenditure policy issue. In recent years, the NTJ has received nearly 130 annual submissions and publishes about 35 papers. The University of Chicago Press has published the National Tax Journal since 2021.
The National Tax Journal is a publication of the National Tax Association. Founded in 1907, the National Tax Association serves as the leading association of scholars and professionals dedicated to advancing the theory and practice of public finance, including public taxing, spending, and borrowing. NTA’s diverse membership is its unique feature and its greatest strength. The Association brings together government, corporate, academic, and independent professionals – a rich mix of federal and state legislators, administrators and policy analysts, taxpayer representatives, practicing lawyers, accountants, professors of economics, law and accounting, students and interested citizens.
