Economic Analysis
Nickerson & Associates is often asked to apply economic reasoning and theory to analyze real-world events. We have, for example, forecasted timber harvests in light of environmental laws, studied the effect of an oil spill on fishery permit prices in Alaska, and analyzed corporate restructuring plans and the effect of such plans on the age and gender distribution of employees. In the public policy arena, we have carefully analyzed and constructed simulations of the effect of agency rules on the distribution of state contracts across contractors and the effect of such policy on individual firms.
