Conceptually, the piece is a treatise/manifesto on the global state of innovation and how a progressive investment firm would approach developing communities economically in order to improve society. We’re looking for a strong voice, with a distinct neo-libertarian perspective, that sees disruptive and transformational technological innovation as a means to create change in policy, society and competitiveness. Think: Milton Friedman meets Chuck Palahnuk The piece should have historical and contemporary citations, but not be overly laden. This would be a first person narrative, but have the tone of an organization. We're looking for writers with a strong voice that are interested in economic development, finance, sociology, urban development, law and policy and write about these subjects in an exciting way. References, to understand or at least preview before making your proposal: most important: the manifesto section on http://www.foundersfund.com Peter Theil https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=peter+thiel Book:...

Trying to source a worker for potential project this September-October, 2015, where you will need to use IMPLAN software to do an Economic Impact Analysis for a government contractor. If you have used IMPLAN in the past (www.implan.com), or if you have used similar software to do an Economic Impact Analysis and think you could learn Implan, then please be in touch to find out more. Price is negotiable, depending on what the contractor receives for the project and is able/willing to pass on, but this is NOT free work, it is a project for a skilled professional, and the fee would be negotiated in advance. I am guessing you might be semi-retired, or a graduate student, or in-between jobs and wanting to keep your skills sharp. I put "Intermediate" in the "desired experience level" as a very general guideline, since I actually don't know yet but I do know I need to find a skilled person who knows what he/she is doing.

I also need some analytics that show the logic behind the forecast (e.g. a breakdown by contributing factors). Details: 1. Any reasonable modelling approach (e.g. Vector Auto-Regression or factor analysis) is fine as long as you have reasoning to back up the choice. I prefer intuitive to complicated models. The model does not need to be original. 2. The number of input variables should be below 30 to avoid complication. I can provide any necessary macro or market input data. 3. Analytics: The output must include reasoning that makes it clear what the drivers of the forecast are – e.g. a breakdown of the forecast into contributions from consumption/investment/other data. a. Some impulse response function or scenario analysis type output would also be good. Just the numbers is fine as I can then chart them in excel. b. Similarly, if we could make statements like: “Our GDP forecast for...
