Established in 2009, our purpose is to conduct economic insight in an intelligent, sensible, and logically orientated framework. Unfortunately, much economic analysis in the public domain lacks rigor, insight or solution. At the same time, economics appears to be the only public policy solution under consideration notwithstanding the fact that not every problem has an economic solution. REA provides those solutions and insight.
REA conducts analysis for individuals, government departments and enterprises, and the private sector. REA delivers comprehensive reports covering a range of economic and financial issues. REA also provides consultancy capabilities.
