Here is the overall ranking of the World's Economics Departments . Here is REPEC's Rankings of individual economists over the last 10 years. While I like my ranking of #290, I see that UCLA is under-represented among economists who rank < 290. I see Andy Atkeson at #277 and nobody else. I'm proud of being #2 at UCLA but I can't help but notice that UC Berkeley has twelve scholars with a rank < 290. Can yardstick competition yield greater research effort?
