The world is becoming increasingly urbanized with cities seen as the engines of growth on which national performance is based.
However, a place’s assets and institutions influence their economic prospects. Ensuring the growth of cities, regions and states in a way which benefits all is a challenge.
We provide insight by advising you on the likely impact of a trend or particular policy on a place through local or regional analysis, forecasting and modeling. You can then take advantage of emerging opportunities, or, mitigate against any adverse effects.
Some challenging questions we can help you answer:
- What economic strategies are most beneficial to my city, region or state?
- How do I measure the impact of specific local policy initiatives or investments in my area?
- What is driving the productivity growth of my region and how can policy be used to influence or improve our local economy?
