Discount Rate

In legal cases of personal injury and wrongful death, economists apply a discount rate to lost future income, so as to get the present value of economic damages. Gilbert Economics uses current market rates to discount future income.


For expert witness work we charge $300 per hour for research, consulting, report preparation, and testimony at deposition and trial. We do not charge for travel time or travel-related expenses in the states of Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Minnesota, Tennessee or Wisconsin.
