While finance and economy tend to be a generally rewarding field, salaries for economists can vary significantly, especially according to whether the professional is working in the public or private sector. While scoring a position in the private sector is much harder, mainly because private companies tend to look for professionals with at least a Master’s degree, a Bachelor’s degree is more than enough to land you a well paid job in the public sector. Salaries for the public sector can start from $60,000 an year.
