The Dissemination of Research Agendas among Young Economists.
Diamond, Arthur M., Jr.; Haurin, Donald R.
Journal of Economic Education, v24 n1 p53-61 Win 1993
Reports on study of whether the research agendas of economists who graduate from highly regarded research universities differ from those who graduate from lower-ranked institutions. Finds that, in econometrics, money, international economics, and industrial organization, research topics flow from the elite to the rank-and-file schools; however, this lag does not occur in fields such as agriculture or economic development.
