Are elite universities losing their competitive edge?

  • Adair Morse
Registered author(s):

    Adair Morse turns to the social sciences and analyzes how research productivity in top economics and finance programs has changed over time. She finds that the advantage of elite universities is declining and argues this is because new communications technologies have eroded the benefits of researcher co-location. Physical proximity to research colleagues is simply becoming less important, and this is reflected in a declining spillover effect for top programs.
