"A famous book published in 1990 showed evidence of ['the fact that economists spend too much time developing complex thought experiments and clever stories and not working to understand the complexities of the real-world economy'] in the top graduate programs in our discipline. ... When asked what was most important to success as an economist, students ranked these skills in this order (page 18):
Being smart in the sense of being good at problem solving.
Excellence in mathematics.
Being very knowledgeable about one particular field.
Ability to make connections with prominent professors.
Being interested in, and being good at, empirical research.
Having a broad knowledge of the economics literature.
Having a thorough knowledge of the economy.
