In the News: Decline in Self-employment


Nationally acclaimed economist, Elliot Eisenberg, Ph.D. stated on his blog yesterday that despite the variety of Internet apps for working remotely, self-employment has declined. Today it is 6.5% as opposed to 7.7% in 2005 and 8.5% in 1995.

You can read his 70-word blog post on the topic at http://econ70.com/2015/09/10/shrinking-self-employment/

Do you find it odd that despite better technology, fewer people are self-employed?
