REPEC Rankings For Research Productivity Over the Last Ten Years

I see that I'm UCLA #1 REPEC ranked economist for research conducted over the last ten years.   I like that.  What have I gotten done?  Click here.  REPEC doesn't count books or papers published in non-econ journals.  Now that I'm #1, I look forward to some competition. It will only make UCLA stronger.  I can't claim that any perks or university wide influence come bundled with this distinction but my self esteem is now 8% higher.  For the overall lifetime ranking, I'm #6 at UCLA behind Sebastian Edwards, Ivo Welch, Ed Leamer,  Richard Roll and Gary Hansen.   I'm predicting convergence.
