for the Macropolicy Group and supervising economist for the Atlanta
Federal Reserve’s Survey of Southeastern Manufacturing. Rogers
has taught economic forecasting and economics in an adjunct capacity
for Emory University and Clayton University and State College.
Rogers has used his expertise in public service
as a governor’s appointee to the Georgia Commission on Child
Support, 1998, and was the commission's only member economist. In
this role, Rogers researched the origins of Georgia’s guidelines
and its conflicts with long-established, mainstream economic theory.
His child cost research included, but was not limited to: a review
of child support guideline methodologies, child costs by differing
methodologies, analysis of differential tax treatment for custodial
and non-custodial parents, and comparative standards of living for
custodial and non-custodial parents. His child cost research continues,
focusing on guideline presumptions compared to actual economic data
on child costs.
Rogers has testified as an expert witness in Florida,
Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire,
New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin, and
Wyoming. He has consulted on child cost issues for clients in Alabama,
Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan,
Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico,
New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington
State, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
Rogers also has testified on child support issues
before legislative committees in Georgia, Minnesota, Texas, and
Virginia and by invitation before the U.S. Congress. He has presented
to child support review commissions in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina,
Ohio, Tennessee, and Virginia.
