Launching the third and final issue on “Education and Innovation”

24 November 2012 22,335 views No Comment

The Transatlantic – Journal of Economics and Philosophy – has published its third issue on the topic “Education & Innovation”. This issue is at the same time our last one. Never­theless, the website will stay intact in order to give others the opportunity to publish on the topic of Philosophy and Economics from a stu­dent perspective. The design and making of the website will probably undergo a number of changes soon to meet our new requirements. Check www.thetransatlantic.org to find out more about the future of The Transatlantic and have a look at past issues, too.

The first two articles of the current issue are on the controversial notion of intellectual prop­erty rights: Marvin Backes contends in his “Intellectual Property Rights: Innovation and Social Welfare” (p. 6) that intellectual property rights are necessary to ensure incentives for in­novation and promote social welfare. Contrary to that, in a guest article entitled “The case for weak­er Intellectual Property regulations” (p. 18) Paolo Crosetto argues to the effect that such rights are detrimental both from an intellectual and an eco­nomic point of view. Ultimately, Michael Doyle has written a piece on “The impact of increasing min­imum school leaving age on the labour market”, p. 12.

We would like to thank all our readers for their inter­est in the project. We hope to hear from you again in the future!

All the best,
The Transatlantic Team
