Economics expert witness candidates usually have experience in forensic accounting, economic damages, business 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 have the ability to explain complex financial issues and evidence to a judge and jury. In a high-profile claim, or litigation involving a major financial stake, a law firm may need an economist or damages expert with previous 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 factors in the economy (such as households, companies, buyers, and sellers), while macroeconomics studies the economy as a system (such as employment, resources, land, inflation, and economic growth). Forensic economics uses economic theories and techniques to pecuniary damages issues. A forensic economist can be involved to support economic matters including personal and commercial litigation, economic damage estimates, fraud, economic loss because of personal injury, antitrust disputes, and various other business, property, and asset valuations.
