Risk Economics, Inc sponsors a range of organizations and events including the following:

 
Risk Econ® Lab for Decision Metrics at NYU Courant Institute

The RiskEcon® Lab applies a range of computational methods to analyze consumer and population-related societal trends. Recent events demonstrate that many large-scale geopolitical and socioeconomic questions are particularly related to the implications and effects of interrelated changes in demographics, technology adoption, and lifestyle choices on the economy. Understanding these patterns is crucial for decision-making in both industry and government. The most critical are the emerging effects of changes in technology and consumer behavior on finance, labor, and housing, and on trends in income and wealth distribution, immigration, aging, health and the environment.[..see additional details..]
