Educational Decisions Correlate With Self-Employment

            Advocacy’s Chief Economist, Dr. Chad Moutray, just released a working paper that shows college graduates who specialize in social science tend toward self-employment as compared to those with bachelor’s degrees in other subjects.


            This week at George Washington University Moutray presented his findings as well as an overview of previous research on the subject.


            Here are some highlights from his lecture:

    I think with the current economic down turn and unemployment rates, more and more people will start to turn to some form of self employment which is a good thing if more jobs can be create. Too bad loans are hard to get to even start a small business.
