Economists

Employment opportunities for economists are expected to grow as fast as the average for all occupations through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Economists employed by private industry—especially in management, scientific, and technical consulting services—will enjoy the strongest prospects. The DOL predicts that "Demand for economists should grow as a result of the increasing complexity of the global economy, additional financial regulations, and a more competitive business environment." Employment with the federal government—the largest employer of economists—is expected to decline.
