IEc helps clients apply a variety of economic modeling tools to complex policy decisions that
may indirectly affect output and employment across multiple sectors of the economy. We help our
clients understand the analytic strengths and limitations of different modeling options; design,
structure, and perform economic modeling analyses; and interpret model results in the context of
specific policy questions.
Our experience in this regard includes applications involving input-output
(e.g., IMPLAN), macro-econometric, multi-market equilibrium, and computable general equilibrium models.
Across these modeling paradigms, we have assessed the economic implications of regulatory compliance costs,
the human health benefits of environmental regulation, and conservation measures affecting land use patterns.
IEc’s economic modeling analyses of these effects have helped government agencies understand the broader
economic implications of their policy decisions and have informed stakeholders of how they might these decisions.
