Economic Studies

Economic considerations form part of every project, and a realistic, informed profile of the situation is needed to make the best decisions. The mathematical and econometric tools used by economists can help decision-makers to obtain a general understanding of their projects. If a financial analysis is one of the tools used for a project, an economist will make sure the equation includes all the benefits or disadvantages, even those that are difficult to quantify. 

Over the years, Groupe DDM has developed extensive expertise in every facet of economic assessment, including data collection, statistical analysis, modelling, predictive models, financial analysis, cost-benefit analysis, business plans, strategic plans and so on.
