Enterprise Africa! A Firsthand Account of African Development

Feb 24, 2006


Karol Boudreaux, Senior Fellow at the Mercatus Center, spoke about Enterprise Africa! at this year's Chief of Staff Retreat.  She informed policy makers in attendance about the progress of the project as well as the central role of entrepreneurship in reducing the effects of poverty.

The Mercatus Center’s annual Chief of Staff Retreat is the leading bi-partisan, off-the-Hill gathering for senior congressional staff. The Retreat offers participants a chance to explore pioneering economic ideas, focus on key legislative matters, and interact across party lines in a comfortable and educational setting away from Capitol Hill. With discussions ranging from general economic concepts to more specific policy concerns, the Retreat is the perfect way for staff to step back from the world of politics, enhance their policy knowledge, and consult with a wide assortment of academics and practitioners.
