my name is Benjamin Nypaver (you can call me Ben) and if you are
reading this, then I'm currently in my junior year as an economics
major at the university of Akron. Why did I decide to become an
economist? Well, I had to take a rather elementary economics class in
high school, and I absolutely loved it, so I decided to make economics
my career choice. Last year, however, I reconsidered and thought about
becoming a business major. Business wasn't the choice for me,
however--maybe a good second major or minor, but I really wanted to go
back to economics.
What do I want to do with my economics
degree? I haven't quite decided this yet--I feel I haven't taken enough
classes yet to to even determine if I'd rather go into the private
sector or the public sector. I can see myself working for either a big
corporation, or for a government agency or bureau.
