I've got a 1st class honours in Economics and was wondering whether to do a masters in accounting, or to find a job(which is quite difficult with Covid-19 currently) and do part time ACCA

Does a masters degree really make you more employable?

A masters degree gives you an edge over other individuals with a bachelors degree which in turn whittles down the level of competition ahead of you a bit, vis a vis Job securement and/or transitioning into managerial positions due to the specialised knowledge gained from earning a masters.

A masters degree doesn’t guarantee employment nor promotion but bolsters your knowledge in a specific field and in terms of employability, stands you out, makes you a preferred candidate.

You are probably in the best position to answer this question: could you please explain to me how the gold standard offset imbalance in trade equilibrium in the 18th and 19th century ?

Thanks 😊🥺

The gold standard is mainly used as a fixed exchange rate example vs floating exchange rates. I believe this website provides a good explaination to your question: http://bilbo.economicoutlook.net/blog/?p=2562
