In a paper published in the Journal of Money, Credit and Banking, McGeary, Harrison, and I showed that the JMCB’s data+code archive of generally did not support the replication of the journal’s published results. We recommended several procedures for ensuring that the archived data and code would reproduce the published results. The JMCB Editors recently adopted a few new procedures, ignoring most of the recommendations. This paper checks to see whether the new procedures are working. They are not.
