“My studies in Economics taught me to analyze business situations with a critical eye towards cost benefit analysis,” Jeffrey stated in a recent email.  “Every decision that is made involves a basic economic evaluation of the potential costs vs the potential benefits. In Human Resources Management we are constantly putting on our economics hat when creating labor budgets, making legal decisions and negotiating Collective Bargaining Agreements.”  (Last Updated 9/27/17)
