World Review of Political Economy (WRPE) is a quarterly, peer-reviewed title published by Pluto Journals in close relationship with the World Association for Political Economy (WAPE), with the first issue having been published in 2010. This groundbreaking project is the first of its kind: a pioneering collaboration between Chinese academics and a Western progressive publisher to produce a serious periodical of Marxist political economy. The WRPE is certain to be the essential forum for dialogue, cooperation, debate, and the sharing of cutting-edge research among the leading scholars in China, the English-speaking world, and beyond.

World Review of Political Economy (WRPE) takes a critical approach to analyzing the social and economic problems facing humankind, which reflects the outlook of its founding organization. WAPE, founded in 2004, is an international nongovernmental academic body established on an open, non-profit and voluntary basis by progressive economists and related groups from around the world. The WAPE secretariat is based at the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics. The present chairman is Distinguished Professor Enfu Cheng, director of the Center of Economic and Social Development, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
