He formed Applied Analysis, a Nevada-based advisory firm, in 1997 and has become a trusted expert on the Nevada economy.

In 2005, he served as the lead analyst for the Clark County Growth Task Force; and, in 2008, he was the principal researcher for the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce Fiscal Impact Series, which helped pave the way for significant reforms to Nevada’s public employee pay and benefit statutes during the 2009 Session of the Nevada State Legislature.
Currently, Aguero is focusing on a number of issues. With the state and local government budget challenges, education reform topics and business restructuring and reposition analyses atop the list.
