Alex Tabarrok at Marginal Revolution points to this item at the American Economic Association website:
Job Openings for Economists (JOE) has been published only electronically for the past decade. Starting with the August 2011 issue, JOE will resume publishing in print format to ensure compliance with U.S. Department of Labor regulations for obtaining work visas for non-citizen economists. Print issues will be distributed via the U.S. Postal System two to three weeks after they are published electronically.
MP: Maybe it's a government plot to help save the Post Office?
