I'm an economist by training. I've been using LaTeX for more than 20 years, ever since I wrote my Ph.D. dissertation with an early version of LaTeX. I continue to use LaTeX for my working papers and some of my professional publications. I once edited an entire conference proceedings volume in LaTeX. At my current organization, I've written a package, consisting of a LaTeX style file, a BibTeX style file, and a user guide, to implement the various style and layout requirements my organization has come up with for working papers written by our economists. This package (i) has helped up free up much of the authors' time otherwise wasted on figuring out how to implement the guidelines written primarily for users of MS Word and (ii) has actually convinced some of our economists to finally make the switch from MS Word to LaTeX, at least for their working papers.
