Economic Strategy Group
The Aspen Economic Strategy Group (AESG), co-chaired by Henry M. Paulson, Jr. and Erskine Bowles, promotes evidence-based policymaking that fosters widespread economic opportunity and the long-run competitiveness of American firms and workers. The group also builds bipartisan relationships across party lines and generations of policymakers. The AESG facilitate rigorous, bipartisan debate and discussion that is informed by evidence and values about important, long-term economic policy challenges with the goal of identifying good policy. In turn, AESG members apply the outcomes of these discussions in various spheres of their influence, including media, research, business, and politics.
