Dr. Philip J. Romero is professor of finance at the University of Oregon. He is a public policy economist who consults actively with companies and governments, helping them to enhance their competitiveness.  As chief economist to the governor of California in the 1990s, he led landmark legislation that lowered taxes, deregulated uncompetitive industries, and broke up government monopolies.  These policies revived the state’s flagging economy and turned it around sharply, from losing to adding 1,000 jobs per day.  In the 2000s, he was dean of two graduate business schools: the University of Oregon and California State University, Los Angeles.  Romero has also consulted on the interplay between economic change and corporate performance or public finance for scores of Fortune 500 companies, five state governors, and several U.S. presidential candidates, including two presidents.          For seventeen years Riaan Nel has been working with clients to ensure their financial stability. He brings them an international perspective as well as strong experience in the U.S. system. Prior to forming Detlefsen Nel & Associates and managing $85 million, he was a financial advisor at Morgan Stanley. Riaan's education and licensures include the following: 

• Bachelor of Arts Degree in Social Sciences from the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa

• Honors Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science (International Political Economy) from the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa

• Certificate of Achievement (Economics), Edinburgh Business School, Harriot-Watt University, Scotland

• Fundamentals of Estate Planning, Financial and Insurance Planning, American College, Pennsylvania

• Securities registration include FINRA Series 7 Registration, General Securities Representative; Series 66, Investment Advisor Representative; and Series 31 Registration, Futures Managed Funds, National Futures Association, held through LPL Financial.

Nel was born and raised in South Africa and worked as an Economics Researcher, Strategic Planner and Manager of a Parliamentary Research Unit in the South African Parliament before immigrating to the United States in 1998. He was also a contributing staff member on the Constitutional Assembly which finalized the negotiations between Nelson Mandela's party and the previous governing party of South Africa. 

Nel is currently the managing partner of Detlefsen Nel & Associates.

Most "managerial economics" textbooks are thinly disguised microeconomics texts: highly theoretical, too dependent on abstract and unproven assumptions, and simply undigestible by busy, practical-minded executives/readers. Furthermore, such texts leave it up to the reader to apply their lessons so as to gain value from the knowledge, and to reinforce that knowledge through practice. The "theory of the firm" does not resonate with most corporate executives. But in fact, economic forces drive the context for all our important business decisions: When and how much to expand or contract; which markets to enter and exit; when to raise or lower prices; and how to invest surplus resources (retained earnings for companies and savings for individuals). This book is an application of economics (both micro and macroeconomics) to one of the central challenges of our age for any citizen in a developed economy: How to invest their resources in a changed economic landscape. It contends that the quarter century from the early 1980s to the late 2000s was a unique historical period, creating an exceptionally benign commercial and investing environment. It will not return once the Great Recession is firmly behind us. The core message of the book is an extended application of economic principles and reasoning, phrased in a form readily digestible to any interested layman. It can be used as a companion to a traditional economics text, or as a stand-alone application-oriented text. The main application explored is of investment decisions of corporations seeking to deploy retained earnings, and of individuals seeking to prepare for the day when they no longer rely on wage income.
