WinEcon is a 'not for profit' product. All revenue generated from sales is used to maintain and further develop the WinEcon software.

WinEcon's development entailed an estimated 40 person years of effort, involved 35 economic content authors and 17 programmers, and cost in the region of £1m.

The software was developed over a period of five years by a consortium of 10 UK economics departments funded under the UK higher education funding councils' Teaching and Learning Technology Programme. The WinEcon Consortium is made up of ten Member institutions, supported by over 150 Associate Members, and is managed by the University of Bristol. Guidance was provided by an Advisory Group with representatives elected by the associate membership.
