Know Your Value


Can economics tell me what something is worth?

Traditional valuations often miss the mark because they look at the world as it is now, providing a static perspective. Economics is about the interaction of people, businesses, markets, and investments and how they evolve over time. We provide an accurate valuation based on accurate market forecasts. 

Real questions we have answered:

  • Our union is going into wage negotiations. To make a fair argument, we need to know what inflation would be, not in general, but for our member households in the cities that they live. ECONorthwest has provided local area inflation forecasts for both unions and employers of unions.
  • The wind farms in my county claim that, after 20 years, the farms are worthless and would not generate any property taxes. This is unlikely, but they have convinced some in the state that this may be true. Can you analyze what would actually happen to the value of a wind farm, and explain it in a clear and simple way?
