What are good jobs for people who love economics, but hate sales?
Hello, I'm fascinated by Economics. I know ... NERD! Whatever, the more I find out, the more I want to know. Most people think Stock Broker or Financial Advisor when they think about Finance. I hate sales, though. I can do it, but I'm sure I could learn to eat with my feet if necessary as well, and it's toss up to which I would rather rely on for my living. So what jobs are there in finance for LOVERS of economics, HATERS of Sales Based Employment; and how do I get them? I already have a degree in Business, but not in Econ, Finance, or Accounting. I've considered going back to school for a combination of MBA/MA in Economics/JD Law Degree. Even if I get more schooling, I'll still need a day job at this point to finance it. So what can people recommend? Thank you in advance to everyone who can help me.
