I'd like to start a list that could serve to measure the site's coverage of subfields of economics. This question is a partial response to the concerns expressed in the question, "How can we broaden the site's coverage of the various subfields of economics?". As a goal, it would be nice if we could find a question (or ask a new one if one doesn't already exist) from each of the 20 JEL classification categories. I've reproduces the list from the Wikpedia article here.

There are 20 primary JEL categories:

  • JEL: A – General Economics, Handbooks and Teaching
  • JEL: B – History of Economic Thought, Methodology, and Heterodox Approaches
  • JEL: C – Mathematical and Quantitative Methods
  • JEL: D – Microeconomics
  • JEL: E – Macroeconomics and Monetary Economics
  • JEL: F – International Economics
  • JEL: G – Financial Economics
  • JEL: H – Public Economics
  • JEL: I – Health, Education, and Welfare
  • JEL: J – Labor and Demographic Economics
  • JEL: K – Law and Economics
  • JEL: L – Industrial Organization
  • JEL: M – Business Administration and Business Economics; Marketing; Accounting
  • JEL: N – Economic History
  • JEL: O – Economic Development, Technological Change, and Growth
  • JEL: P – Economic Systems
  • JEL: Q – Agricultural and Natural Resource Economics; Environmental and Ecological Economics
  • JEL: R – Urban, Rural, and Regional Economics
  • JEL: Y – Miscellaneous Categories
  • JEL: Z – Other Special Topics.

Could we start by making each answer contain one or more example question from a single JEL category---one answer per JEL category?

Notes:

From Wikipedia, Articles in economics journals are usually classified according to the JEL classification codes, a system originated by the Journal of Economic Literature.

  • $\begingroup$ The current IO tag has the British English spelling, but it might make sense to standardize on the American English. $\endgroup$ – Ubiquitous Dec 11 '14 at 8:05
