Demonstrating Economic and Employment Value

Beacon Economics specializes in analyzing the economic impacts of EB-5 investments and regional centers and in accurately demonstrating the economic and employment value an EB-5 project brings to a region.

Beacon’s researchers apply decades of combined experience and top-tier economics training to deliver analyses that illustrate the direct, indirect, and induced effects of EB-5 investments on job creation, household earnings, and demand for business services. State-of-the-art software – IMPLAN and/or RIMS II regional input/output models – is employed as a basis for the firm’s analysis.
