What Peter can do for you
Dr Peter Bowbrick has made or saved
enormous sums of money for clients, and has saved millions of lives. He is
one of the very few economists who can apply a high level of theory to
real life problems and produce practical, implementable, solutions.
- He has persuaded the European Commission to change its
policies - saving UK consumers £1 Billion a year and saving EU consumers
£10 Billion a year. (Read
- He has increased a company's revenue by 40%, £60m per year, in only
one month's consultancy without
reducing output or quality.
- He has created markets that work, so that farmers and the food
industry make money, and consumers can afford their products.
- He has increased farmers' net cash income by 100% or more - across the sector.
- He has stopped famines.
- He has persuaded many governments to
change their policies.
How does he do it?
To produce top quality economics like this, you need four things:
- You have to have an outstanding knowledge of economics. You can't
produce top quality economics using third rate economic theory. Or
what you remember from your undergraduate days.
- You have to have a wide experience. Without it, even the best theory
cannot achieve much.
- You have to have the very rare ability to apply a high level of
economics to the real world.
- You have to have the consultancy skills needed to make things
Peter has outstanding academic qualifications and, far more important,
has produced original economic theory to tackle real world problems. He
has a wide experience and he has the consultancy skills and experience.
Peter Bowbrick has an international reputation in marketing economics, in
the economics of quality, grades and brands, in food policy and in the
economics of famine.
Experience makes it possible to apply your economic theory properly, and
get results quickly. It means you know what questions to ask, where the
problems are likely to be, and what kind of solution may work. Using the
experience of one industry in an apparently unrelated industry is
particularly powerful, turning up solutions and opportunities that people
with a narrower experience may have missed.
