The top 200 young economists were selected from a pool of 18,625 candidates whose first publication of any kind was published 10 or fewer years ago.

Compared to 2015, Khuong has jumped five levels, from 12th place to 7th place.

Those who ranked in the top 10 of the young economists list are the alumni of schools such as The University of Chicago, MIT, Yale and The Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania in the United States, as well as the Toulouse School of Economics in France, and so on.

RePEc is the collaborative effort of hundreds of volunteers in 87 countries to enhance the dissemination of research in economics and related sciences. The heart of the project is a decentralised bibliographic database of working papers, journal articles, books, book chapters and software components, all maintained by volunteers. The collected data are then used in various services that deliver it to users or enhance it.

So far, more than 1,800 archives from 86 countries have contributed some 2 million research pieces from 2,300 journals and 4,300 working paper series. Some 46,000 authors have registered and 75,000 email subscriptions are served every week. — VNS
