    Since you are pretty sure that academia is where you want to end up, it is probably a good idea to look more closely at the strategy/IS/MGMT programs rather than the econ programs. Econ tends to send a pretty healthy number of graduates to industry and academic jobs are a bit harder to come by comparatively.
    The impact of technology on markets and society is a very macro/strategy type topic. Strategy programs that have people with public policy/sociology backgrounds could be a good fit here (UC-Berkley, WashU, GWU, Indiana, Carnegie Mellon, etc).

    Thats exactly one of my worries. I think the econ job market in academia is facing too much competition from econ phds. Thanks for the tips on schools!
