Economic analysis – methods and tools to deliver valuable insights

Our economic analysts will apply methods, tools and analysis to deliver valuable insights into government policy and private sector initiatives.

Governments are wary of policy changes or supporting private sector initiatives without robust analysis and assurance that they are in the public interest and represent a sound allocation of scarce resources.

Policy and project proposals, particularly complex ones that impact multiple stakeholders, are subject to intense scrutiny, especially from agencies such as Commonwealth, State and Territory treasuries and regulators.

Economic analysis – the systematic application of economic reasoning and techniques to real world problems and issues – is a core competency of ACIL Allen Consulting. Our economic analyses and the advice that flow from that analyses are rigorous and disciplined, and capable of withstanding the most robust review.

We provide independent analysis of the commercial, economic and social implications of major projects, programs and policy changes to public- and private-sector clients across a wide range of industries.
