Economy

Many of the economic challenges facing us today and in the future can only be tackled using an interdisciplinary approach. Of particular importance in this area is the efficient and effective formation of government regulation and the consideration of external effects. On the basis of innovative economic and business methods, econcept develops solid, interdisciplinary and practical frameworks for decision-making in politics, administration and industry. Our main areas of focus are environmental, energy and resource economics, as well as agricultural economics and the welfare state economy.

We assist the federal and cantonal governments in establishing efficient and effective regulation. This involves evaluating the economic effects of new and existing regulations using qualitative and quantitative methods and arriving at recommendations for optimising the regulations.
