Rigourous economic advisory for extraordinary initiatives

Developed from the perspective of educators, researchers and practitioners of economic study.
Serving extraordinary organizations.
More often than not, we encounter difficult questions that require thoughtful and sophisticated answers. The challenge for many is having the capacity or in-house capabilities needed to gather and synthesize the right information. All organizations can benefit from the expertise that comes with knowing how to tailor research and build a story that informs an audience.

Leave that to us. We combine economics, statistics, and strategy development to create actionable insights that are creative and fit-for-purpose. Our team has several decades of publishing, teaching, and practical experience and our service offerings are designed to bring industry-leading expertise and capability inside the walls of your organization.
We focus on...
Public Policy
We provide rigorous analysis to help organizations, including government at all levels, to conceptualize and evaluate potential and enacted changes in public policy. Public policy also has direct and indirect consequences for many organizations. We help affected organizations anticipate and navigate the impact of public policy
changes.

Our Engagement Models

Traditionally, economists have only been employed at organizations with massive head-counts or that operated in a narrow market especially vulnerable to external forces. However, organizations of all shapes and sizes can benefit from economic advising as no industry is immune from market forces. In addition to the two more common pricing models, we also offer our services as a “fractional” advisor - bolstering your organization’s economics analytical capabilities.
