Economic Development and Cultural Change is a peer-reviewed academic journal published by the University of Chicago Press. It covers all aspects of the economics of developing countries, including education reform, immigration, debt bondage, ethnicity, land redistribution, and economic development and cultural change.

The major founder of the journal was Bert F. Hoselitz who served as editor from 1952 until 1985.[1] The journal was established at the University of Chicago's Center for Research on Economic Development and Cultural Change. The Center's board and the journal's founders took the view that interdisciplinary research would be required to understand issues of economic development.
