It depends on where the economist works. In the financial industry and in large corporations, economists are hired to help other employees understand changes in the economy, especially monetary policy changes at the US Federal Reserve. At small colleges, economists are hired to teach economics. At large universities, economists will have research responsibilities in addition to their teaching responsibilities if they want to become full professors.
