image for Economists Predict Big Pay Increases for Economists
An economist begging for clemency before being executed by a firing squad.

New York City, NY - A group of economists at the New York Institute of Economics published a report forecasting a large increase in the salaries and rates paid to economists. Samuel Himes, one of the economists involved in preparing the report, said:

"We expect the salaries to increase dramatically, consistently, year after year. The best way for employers of economists to deal with these forecasted pay increases is probably to give hefty bonuses and pre-emptive raises as an incentive to keep economists from jumping ship to other companies."

According to the New York Times classified ads, the going rate for an economist to speak at your gathering is $3.00 per hour.
