ORDO - Jahrbuch für die Ordnung von Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft (official English translation: The Ordo Yearbook of Economic and Social Order, most commonly referred to as Ordo Yearbook, or simply as ORDO) is a peer-reviewed academic journal created by German economists Walter Eucken and Franz Böhm in 1948. The periodical focuses on the economic and political institutions governing modern society.



The term ordoliberalism was labelled echoing the journal’s title.[1] Furthermore, the concept of social market economy, being the main economic model used in Western and Northern Europe during and after the Cold War era, has been developed nearly exclusively within ORDO.[2]

Today, the journal's mission is to provide a forum of debate for scholars of diverse disciplines such as economics, law, political science, sociology, and philosophy.[3] ORDO is published annually and serves as a kind of signboard for German political and institutional economists. Articles are published either in German or in English. Each volume of ORDO consists of approximately 450 pages. Average article length is about 10.000 words. ORDO also contains book reviews.
