Economic Woes Hit Economists Too

The job market for newly minted PhDs in economics is nicely coordinated by the American Economic Association (AEA) which publishes a virtually all-encompassing job openings listing for institutions that have positions to fill.

This year, for the first time (as least that I know about), the AEA is posting a special bulletin of cancelled job postings. It is already long, but is missing many others that I have heard about through the grapevine.

You have got to love the first cancelled job search (as of the time of this post): Senior Risk Modeler - Home Equity Risk, for Bank of America. You CAN'T make this stuff up!

Things are bad all over...

By the way, if you are in the market for an economist, this year should be a buyer's market!
