The UP Experience 2012 speaker announced – Edward Conard

Ed-Conard-courtesy-of-the-authorThe UP Experience is pleased to welcome Edward Conard, author of the recently-released New York Times bestseller, Unintended Consequences: Why Everything You’ve Been Told About the Economy is Wrong.

In his new book, Conard attempts to set the record straight and fill the void left by other business and economic analysts. He presents a fascinating and contrarian case for how the economy really works, what went wrong over the past decade, and what steps we can take to start growing again. As a result, Conard has had many passionate and, at times, heated debates with personalities including Jon Stewart of The Daily Show, Economist Joe Stiglitz, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, and Governor Rendell on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. In addition, Conard has been featured in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, C-SPAN, CNBC, Bloomberg, and more.

A partner at Bain Capital from 1993 to 2007, Conard served as the head of Bain’s New York office and led the firm’s acquisitions of large industrial companies. He currently resides on several boards of directors including Waters Corporation and Sensata Technologies. He holds an MBA from Harvard and a BSE in Operations Research from the University of Michigan.
