About the Work

Strategic Economics Ltd (njSE) ceased trading at the beginning of April 2018.  It has been a great ride over the last 6+ years and there are no negative reasons for this decision.

Moreover, Nigel Jump continues to operate as an independent consultant and all the services available from njSE can be arranged through him.  The website will persist for a now and the e-mail and phone contact details remain.


Here, we list some of the kinds of projects and commissions njSE has undertaken over the years. Many of these reports are confidential to the client.  Others may be found on their own websites. As appropriate, we are happy to discuss our approach, inputs and the results of this work with potential clients.
