So grateful for my amazing mentors. Isolated professionally as a woman in economics specializing in the analysis of marriage markets I appointed a board of six mentors to whom I started sending biannual reports about 25 years ago.
All male board consisted of the late Gary Becker, #1 on REPEC RIP economists. Clive Granger, #2 REPEC RIP was also on my board. So was Jacob Mincer #14 on REPEC RIP. Other late mentor, Jack Hirshleifer, in top 8% of REPEC RIP. Two mentors still alive, may they be blessed with long healthy life! JJHeckman @heckmanequation is ranked #2 among all economists http://buff.ly/2tM3ts1 . Thanks for all the good advice JIM! Last but not least, Edward Lazear, founder of Personnel Economics, also highly ranked on REPEC. Thanks Ed for being there consistently for 45 yrs.
Thanks to all my mentors, who at some point all served on the board of my journal REHO, a tremendous boost.
