In Co-Pierre Georg and Michael E. Rose: "Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall, Who is the Most Central of Them All?" (SSRN) we create the social network of informal collaboration based on acknowledgments from more than 2,700 published research papers from six financial economics journals.
Who are the most central financial economists of our time? We provide rankings according to two centrality measures compared to the number of times they are acknowledged. We look at two samples (1998-2000 and 2009-2011) and both the network of informal collaboration and the network of formal collaboration.
Here you can find out a bit more about who we are and why we think this website is a fun project.
We are affiliated with The African Insitute of Financial Markets and Risk Management (AIFMRM), South Africa's leading finance and risk institute, based at the University of Cape Town.
