Research Papers in Economics

Research Papers in Economics (RePEc) is a collaborative effort of hundreds of volunteers in many countries to enhance the dissemination of research in economics. The heart of the project is a decentralized database of working papers, preprints, journal articles, and software components. The project started in 1997.[1] Its precursor NetEc dates back to 1993.

Sponsored by the Research Division of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and using its IDEAS database, RePEc provides links to over 1,200,000 full text articles. Most contributions are freely downloadable, but copyright remains with the author or copyright holder. It is among the largest internet repositories of academic material in the world.

Materials to RePEc can be added through a department or institutional archive or, if no institutional archive is available, through the Munich Personal RePEc Archive. Institutions are welcome to join and contribute their materials by establishing and maintaining their own RePEc archive.

Leading publishers, such as Elsevier and Springer, have their economics material listed in RePEc. RePEc collaborates with the American Economic Association's EconLit database to provide content from leading universities' working paper or preprint series to EconLit. Over 1500 journals and over 3300 working paper series have registered, for a total of over 1.2 million articles, the majority of which are online.

The information in the database is used to rank the more than 50,000 registered economists. Andrei Shleifer is currently the highest ranked economist, followed by Joseph Stiglitz and James Heckman.[2] The economics department of Harvard University is ranked first, followed by the World Bank and the University of Chicago.[3] Massachusetts is the top region, followed by the United Kingdom and California.[4] There are also rankings by country and sub-discipline.

RePEc also indexes worldwide economics institutions through its Economic Departments, Institutes and Research Centers in the World (EDIRC) database.[5]

RePEc promotes Open Access journals and also benefits from Open Access for its own citation analysis efforts.[6]

Garance Genicot

Garance Genicot (born 6 October 1974) is a Belgian-American economist and Associate Professor of Economics at Georgetown University. She is a member of the Core Group at Theoretical Research in Development Economics (ThReD), a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) Development Economics Program, a Fellow at the Bureau for Research and Economic Analysis of Development (BREAD) and a Research Fellow at the IZA Institute. Since 2013, she has been an External Member of the World Bank Research Management Committee. A more detailed overview of her work can be found on RePEc., Research Papers in Economics.

Genicot's research focuses on risk sharing, intra-household bargaining, informal credit markets, social networks and inequality. Her highly cited work on group formation and networks focuses on how the interplay of personal incentives and group or network incentives impact economic outcomes, and has applications in a variety of fields within economics, such as economic development, conflict, and labor economics. She studied the relationship between improved property rights for women in India and the incidence of suicide among both men and women.Her work with her PhD advisor, Kaushik Basu and Nobel-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz studies the responsiveness of labor supply to wages, an idea that is central to the classical theory of economics. They argue that at low wage levels, households are financially insecure and would therefore be willing to supply more labor to hedge themselves against economic shocks. This is called the “added labor effect” and has important implications to the ongoing minimum wage debate.Her work on aspirations and inequality with Debraj Ray shows the discouraging impact of aspirations that are too far from a person's situation. This study has wide implications in developing policy, especially in terms of education investments.
