The Changing Distributions of New Ph.D. Economists and Their Employment: Implications for the Future
AbstractThis essay addressed the changing demographic composition of new Ph.D.s in economics and the changing distribution of the jobs that they are obtaining. It discusses how future trends may interact to influence the types of training that economists may provide their graduate students and the types of faculty positions that academic institutions may provide for new Ph.D. economists in the future.
