Deans can't read, but they can count

In a new NBER working paper (ungated version here) Hammermesh and Pfann show that citations and not number of publications affect economists' reputations, but the number of publications and not citations affect economists' salaries, thus demonstrating the fundamental truth expressed in the title of this post.  It is a fun paper, well worth reading, though I am not enamored with their proxies for reputation.
