Public Policy

Building the thriving cities, regions and communities of tomorrow is a challenge, but outstanding results can be achieved when public and private sectors work together for mutual gain.

Policy levers can seek to tax, regulate, prohibit, incentivise or encourage behaviour and outcomes. Ensuring that the correct policy settings are in place is essential to avoid perverse economic outcomes.

As with everything in economics, balance is key. For instance, over taxation can stifle investment and development activity and dull supply. Conversely, deficient planning requirements can result in inadequate provision of infrastructure and services.

Accordingly, striking an equitable balance for both Government and industry is critical. Solving the thorny questions of public policy is Atlas’ forte. Applying our skillsets in market research, economic appraisal and financial analysis, we pride ourselves on providing decision makers with the evidence-based advice needed to drive economic growth and social equity.
