Roningen - Ph.D. in
Consulting services can be provided for a wide variety of economic
issues. We have extensive working
experience with trade, agricultural policy, and energy issues. Our specialty is the rapid, clear quantitative analysis of economic
problems. We can be especially
helpful for policy analysis projects where a modeling tool like VORSIM can be
used. We can build models for the
exclusive use of clients for their projects. Alternatively, we can do a
complete analysis of a problem and deliver a final report to a client,
including any models or quantitative work created in the process. We can also provide training programs for
the VORSIM model-building software.
Since VORSIM is built for Excel using VBA (Visual Basic for
Applications), we have considerable experience with VBA and can help with
your projects that might require VBA. Consulting fees are $200 per day plus
travel per diem and expenses.
