Former Bain Capital partner Edward Conard joins AEI

December 18, 2012

The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) has announced that former Bain Capital partner Edward Conard has joined the conservative think tank as a visiting scholar. 

“Ed’s thoughtful thinking and writing about the relationship between investment, risk taking, income inequality, and economic growth provides a useful corrective to a great deal of the very popular — and very wrong — conventional wisdom about how America’s economy functions,” said AEI president Arthur Brooks in a statement.

At AEI, Conard will study the effect of taxes, government policies and finance on risk-taking and innovation.

Conard is author of The New York Times best-selling book, “Unintended Consequences: Why Everything You’ve Been Told about the Economy is Wrong.” As a former partner at Bain Capital from 1993 to 2007, Conard led the firm’s acquisitions of large industrial companies. He also headed the industrial practice at Bain & Company.
