Expeditionary Economics (EE), in the view of the Kauffman Foundation, is a framework for thinking about how to stimulate economic growth in post-combat/post-catastrophe zones where the American military is about to perform, is performing, or has concluded a mission. The premise of EE is that long-term success of armed engagements will depend on the performance of the economy once combat subsides and the process of rebuilding begins, and further, that building a capacity to establish entrepreneurial capitalism and economic growth is the best way to achieve our post-conflict, post-catastrophe goals.
To explore how to create the conditions most conducive to long-term economic growth after conflicts and natural catastrophes, the Kauffman Foundation is working with the Command and General Staff College Foundation and experts on entrepreneurship, post-conflict economic development, armed conflict, and disaster relief.
