When Robert Nathan founded Nathan Associates in 1946, a handful of consulting economists adapted the economic techniques that had proved so valuable to the U.S. Government during World War II to solve the problems facing U.S. industries and foreign governments. Trained in economic analysis and research, they believed that they could use economic principles and data to guide policies and operations in a way that would ultimately make a positive difference in people's lives.
Now, more than 60 years later and grounded in the same principles and guided by the same core values, our employees are motivated by the belief that we can make a difference. Our consulting staff has grown many times over, and we have expanded our services and geographical reach while remaining small enough to personally ensure the quality of our work.
