The Best University for Economics in Australia

It's either Melbourne or ANU. You'd have to think that good potential grad students are now using the RePEc ranking as a major input to decide where to go to study as as we all know economics is a discipline that is obsessed with rankings and pedigree. I know that several of my colleagues haven't registered in RePEc yet. If they did, it might help push ANU ahead of Melbourne. Of course, I haven't checked how many people there still need to register. If I was the head of an economics unit I would require everyone in the department to register and to be reasonably regularly updating their track record.
