The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
With the current dynamic economic condition that is experienced in the whole world, being an international economic analyst requires this level of academics to give an accurate, factual and precise advice on the guidelines to take when coming up with both monetary and fiscal measures of economic solutions.
