Synergies has experienced economists with extensive applied microeconomic advisory experience in the business and government sectors.
In particular, we use cost benefit analysis to value expected financial outcomes given likely social, economic and environmental costs and benefits in a wide range of policy, competition and business contexts.
Our cost benefit analysis expertise has been utilised on many different projects including for local and state governments, educational institutions and not-for-profit organisations.
