Abstract:

Reports statistics that show that the number of economics majors in the USA achieved a peak in 1989-90 but had declined by 11 percent by 1993 and experienced further 8.8 percent drop from 1992-93 to 1993-94 while at the same time the number of overall Bachelor's degrees granted in all fields climbed steadily. Examines the possible causes for this decline in numbers and explores two possible outcomes and their effects on the discipline of economics.
