Economics expert witness candidates generally have experience in forensic accounting, economic damages, company valuation, tax law, financial services, and/or are certified public accountants (CPA) or certified fraud examiners. An economics expert witness should not only have the appropriate substantive expertise but must also possess the ability to describe complicated financial matters and evidence to a judge and jury. In a prominent claim, or litigation involving a considerable financial stake, an attorney might need an economic expert or damages expert with prior expert testimony experience. The chosen expert could be a member of an industry organization such as the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), the American Economic Association (AEA), or the National Association of Forensic Accountants (NAFA).
Microeconomics evaluates basic elements in the economy (such as households, firms, buyers, and sellers), while macroeconomics studies the economy as a system (such as employment, capital, land, inflation, and economic growth). Forensic economics applies economic concepts and methods to pecuniary damages issues. A forensic economist can be involved to assist economic issues including personal and commercial litigation, economic damage estimates, fraud, economic loss due to personal injury, antitrust disputes, and other business, property, and asset valuation.
