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.

In its critical approaches to analyzing the social and economic problems facing humankind, the WRPE reflects the outlook of its founding organization. The World Association for Political Economy, 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.
