Welcome to Independent Economics
"Econtech Pty Ltd was established in 1994 and adopted the trading name of Independent Economics
in 2011. This trading name reflects our commitment to robust, independent economic analysis, which we are able to make as
an unaffiliated, boutique economic modelling practice. I invite you to read more about
Chris Murphy, Director, Independent Economics.
Independent Economics is an independent provider of economic modelling services.
We assist clients through model-informed economic policy analysis and
forecasting. For some clients we provide reports on modelling that we undertake, while for others we develop and support models that they use themselves.
We model entire economies as well as particular markets, industries or regions. We are strongly committed to independent economic modelling that provides
robust analysis and real solutions to meet client needs. In Australia, we provide services to
industry, and we also provide services
internationally. Chris Murphy, who is a well known modeller, policy analyst and forecaster, is
the Director of Independent.
Chris and the rest of the Independent team
have developed a suite of Independent Australian economic models. These new policy and
forecasting models are being used in a wide variety of client work, including to model tax reform options,
most recently for the Australian Government's Business Tax Working Group, to
quantify the benefits of improved productivity, to analyse options for Federal-State financial relations, and
to provide timely economic forecasts. Internationally, Independent provides services to the Governments
of Singapore and Malaysia, constructing and supporting national economic models. With growing demand for
our services, opportunities regularly arise for new team members.
