In this era of focused companies with limited overheads and shrunken central staffs, successful business economists must find a way to demonstrate the value of economics to the company's bottom line. While a formal economics education provides a good set of tools for analyzing things that should be important to a corporation, making analyses useful for companies requires skills not taught in graduate school. Because each corporation develops its own character, we economists must find a way to reach that character (or characters). A review of an economist's day illustrates this effort.
