With the U.S. economy struggling to recover from its worst downturn since the Great Depression, policymakers and citizens are asking what long-term economic growth policies will help create
new jobs and opportunities without adding to the national debt.
In response to this challenge, the Kauffman Foundation is convening the second annual

and accelerate U.S. economic growth, emphasizing changes in law and legal institutions
that do not add to the national deficit.
Please join us for an address from Carl Schramm, president and CEO of the Kauffman Foundation, followed by lunch and a panel discussion featuring prominent experts
on growth, economics, and policy.
