Motivation: What is clear from my experience is that authors must be prepared to micromanage the review process with this journal and be very pro-active (reminder e-mails may not be sent to tardy reviewers unless the author makes inquiries). After 5 months from first submission, with no word from the editor, I asked for a status update. I was told they hadn't heard back from one reviewer and that a reminder e-mail would be sent to them. A month later I hadn't heard back yet and sent a follow-up message. I received my first response from reviewers just days later. Again, waited a long time (3 months) after second submission before asking for a status update and, again, received reviewer responses only days later, so my inquiry likely prompted action.

Motivation: The process was very smooth and rather quick. However, the reviewers appear to be completely uninterested in the relevance of the results and appear to focus primarily on whether the method you use is an innovative complex econometric analysis. Thus I would advice to submit there only if you do carry out such an analysis.
