About Carl J. Schramm

Carl J. Schramm, president and CEO of the Kauffman Foundation, is an international authority on entrepreneurial innovation and economic growth. He has served on two Department of Commerce innovation committees during both the Bush and Obama administrations and advises government leaders worldwide on economic expansion. His insight on the role of new firms in economic expansion has been coined “Schramm’s Law.” He also is credited with opening a new field of inquiry—expeditionary economics—which focuses on rebuilding economies in post-conflict nations. Trained as an economist and lawyer, he has founded and cofounded several healthcare finance and information technology companies. A prolific writer, Mr. Schramm’s commentary often appears in The Wall Street Journal and Foreign Affairs. His latest book, Good Capitalism, Bad Capitalism (available in nine languages) is considered an international classic for its insight into economic growth.
