An economics degree is one of the most sought-after skills in the world.
But the profession is not well suited to the job market.
It requires a certain amount of knowledge and the ability to adapt to changing economic circumstances.
According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, the percentage of jobs requiring at least a bachelor’s degree fell from 8.5% in the 1970s to 3.8% in 2010.
The report said this was a reflection of the increasing difficulty in finding qualified people.
This means the profession has become increasingly expensive.
As a result, graduates who choose to study economics now face a higher degree of financial uncertainty and lower earnings.
