In a recent study (supported by the European Economics Association) P. Kalaitzidakis, T. P. Mamuneas and T. Stengos provide an up-to-date ranking of economic journals that are used to compute world-wide rankings of academic institutions in Economics for the period 1994 to 1998. The results show...
We extend the sensitivity analysis of cross-country growth regressions of Levine and Renelt (1992) by introducing a semi-parametric formulation of their regression function. Our results differ from theirs in how certain policy variables affect growth rates. We find that distortion variables,...
In this paper we examine the effect of pollution, as measured by CO2 emissions, on economic growth among a set of OECD countries during the period 1981-1998. We examine the relationship between total factor productivity (TFP) growth and pollution using a semiparametric smooth coefficient model...
We provide rankings of Greek-speaking economics departments based on pages published in the ‘Diamond List’ journals. For the period 1993-1998, the University of Cyprus, the Athens University of business and Economics and the University of Crete are ranked first, second and third, respectively.
We compare the sensitivity analysis of cross-country growth regressions based on extreme bounds analysis to a more direct specification testing approach using non-nested hypotheses tests. The results suggest that those specifications that are adequate are also those that include two of the only...
We conducted a worldwide ranking of academic institutions that produce research in a list of thirty top research journals in economics. We also computed journal rankings for the same period and hence we do not rely on weights that were computed for research carried out in earlier periods. The...
We conduct an update of the ranking of economic journals by <link>Kalaitzidakis, Mamuneas, and Stengos (2003)</link>. However, our present study differs methodologically from that earlier study in an important dimension. We use a rolling window of years between 2003 and 2008, for each year counting the...
