Other awards I got for my pages.
Just a note to say thanks for this web resource. I have only
begun to explore it, but the availability of data from
papers and other sources looks superb, and I think
the links to other resources are excellent also. I'm sure colleagues
here will find it of interest, and I'm getting a few grad students
to check it out. Merci bien!

The Quantitative Macroeconomics and Real Business Cycle Home Page,
organized by Christian Zimmermann, is a very nice example of what
one person can quickly do on the web to make information available
to the profession.

A scholarly hint
of the future can be found in Christian Zimmermann's "
Quantitative Macroeconomics and Real Business Cycle Home Page,
where he provides a very extensive and up-to-date bibliography in
that field. [...]
I would think that everyone in this area will find
something of interest here. [...]
This is a nice illustration of how the net
can be used to support research - it is much more current than any
paper publication can possible be. Finally, it has a very complete
listing of other single subject sites in economics.

In addition to many well selected links, this site
includes a lot of original material. Don't miss this site. You can
really learn something here. This guy is providing a true public
service to serious economic researchers.

I checked out the RBC homepage from the America Online the other day
and am delighted to find all the goodies there that are very useful
to students such as me doing research in this field and feeling a little
bit all-on-my-own with no faculty in our school in this feild. I find the
data and code section especially helpful. I have downloaded the HP
filter (the Dos version) and am playing with it.
Y. Z., USA
Some of the code that you were linked to was a real revelation to me,
especially Ellen McGratten's!
M. W., USA
I applaud your efforts, by the way.

I wrote to tell you that your compilation has been extrememly
useful both as a reference point as well as a source of ideas. It is
a fantastic endeavor. I am also in the process of reading your
dissertation to get some ideas for my own.
I was thrilled to find that this "RBC page" existed. I hope to contribute
to it soon and I know I will refer to it a lot as I work on my thesis.

I just clicked onto your QM&RBC homepage. It's very impressive & informative.
Plenty of people are in debt to you.

I have been wandering through your page for quite a time (Sunday evening)
and I must say that you did a wonderful job. Although I knew about some
of the resources, some others were absolutely new to me. In any case,
your compilation will be very useful in the future, although I could not
display or see any of the pictures.
Thanks a lot!
Congratulations on QM&RBC - it's very impressive.

Hi Christian, as one dealing with economic information, for me the
highest value of your page is that it is selective, and not just a
dumping site for economic related links.
[...] Naturally, I
already bookmarked QM&RBC and I will try to draw attention to this
valuable information resource.
R. G., Mexico
I was very impressed by the number of people reported to have visited your web page (over 13,000), especially since they were able to do this more than a month in the future: according to your page, you are counting the visitors since Dec 14 1997?
Anyway, just wanted to let you know how that your page has been a life-saver during this job market process. I use it for the Joe of course, but also for the EDIRC and the connections to miscellaneous web pages. You have really made life a lot easier for
J. K., USA
One valuable monitor of this ever-expanding literature is provided by
Christian Zimmermann's web page.
Robert G. King and Sergio Rebelo, Resuscitating Real Business Cycles, in: Michael Woodford and John Taylor, Handbook of Macroeconomics, forthcoming.
I should use this opportunity to praise your work at QM&RBC,
it is the unique way to researches in periferic countries to keep updated
with the new findings on the field, also it is a great way to find people
around the world.
R. E., Brazil.
