Welcome to the new website of the Annals of Economics and Statistics. The launch of this site gives me the opportunity to review some significant recent changes which reflect the development of the journal. After switching to English in 2010, the Annals of Economics and Statistics is now taking a step further in 2015 by participating in the JSTOR Current Scholarship Program (CSP). Now readers can access the journal in both electronic and print versions. The JSTOR CSP includes distinguished academic journals, and we are proud to be a member of this very selective group. The Annals of Economics and Statistics is 45 years old and has achieved a well-established scientific reputation, with some of its articles quoted many times. Our goal is, of course, to maintain this high standing, but also to increase the international visibility of the journal. Participating in the JSTOR CSP will be an important asset for accomplishing this mission. The Annals of Economics and Statistics will continue to publish refereed articles in all fields of economic theory, econometrics, and applied economics, either as feature articles or in special issues with various Guest Editors. We strive to improve the management of manuscripts and submissions by making the maximal effort to reach a decision before three months. In terms of organization, the list of Associate Editors has been partially modified with the arrival of several talented young economists, and the Board of Directors has been completely renewed. I firmly believe these evolutions are leading us in the right direction, and that they will contribute to the success and vitality of our journal.

In Memory of Edmond Malinvaud (1923–2015)

Edmond Malinvaud was one of the greatest economists of his generation.
For half a century, he has made outstanding contributions in microeconomic theory, macroeconomics and statistical methods of econometrics, both in research as well as education.
Early on in his career, following his first stay in 1950 at the Cowles Commission in Chicago, he received international recognition, as testified by his role as co-editor of Econometrica (1955-1964) and his election as President of the Econometric Society in 1963. Edmond Malinvaud has always strongly identified as a French economist, while being completely involved with international research.
That he was very French and felt a responsibility towards his native country is shown by the important positions he held in the French Economic Administration, in particular from 1974 to 1987 as General Director of INSEE (French Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies). It is also shown through his many analyses of the French economy, his various courses that he taught, particularly at ENSAE (Ecole Nationale de la Statistique et de l’Administration Economique), at Pantheon – Sorbonne University, and at Collège de France, and the research seminars he has directed, such as the Econometrics Seminar, now known as the Malinvaud Seminar. Nevertheless, Edmond Malinvaud always considered that international recognition was the fundamental criterion of quality and relevance in research, something that was not obvious in France, in economics, in the nineteen-fifties and sixties.
Through his teachings and encouragement to younger researchers, he played a crucial role in leading French economic research onto the path of internationalization. Among his many achievements, Edmond Malinvaud founded in 1970 the Annales de l’INSEE, and in 1986 he initiated its merging with « Les Cahiers Du Seminaire D’Econométrie » to become the Annals of Economics and Statistics.
As a tribute to his oeuvre, the journal is planning a special issue which focuses on his contributions to econometrics and economics at large.
