- This paper reviews the results of the literature on the ranking of centers of excellence in economics. There are two objectives: (1) to examine the evolutionduring the 1990s of certain features of economics research—such as the gap thatexists between the US and the rest of the world, the dominant position of the UKwithin Europe, and the low productivity of economic scholars everywhere—and (2) to document the significant progress that Spanish research institutions have experienced during this period. Results by several broad fields of specialization are summarized here for the first time.
