Arndt-Corden Division of Economics Joins the Crawford School

As many of you know the Arndt Corden Division of Economics became part of the Crawford School at ANU from 1st January. Following the merger the Crawford school is now ranked 7th or 8th * among economics programs in Australia according to RePEc. I only informed RePEc of the merger yesterday (don't know if anyone else did but they didn't say they already knew) so the change isn't reflected in many other places in their system yet.

* It is ranked 8th when only Australian institutions are considered and ranked. It is ranked 7th when Australian institutions are compared to all others in the world. In other words it performs slightly better on the criteria in which institutions are strong globally and slightly weaker on criteria where Australian institutions tend to perform well. Australians get lots of publications in good journals but get fewer citations than global averages.
