Brett D Schaefer speaks frequently on international affairs to business groups, congressional staff and academic audiences. He has proven himself by writing over 120 public policy papers. Mr. Schaefer has proven that he has a greater view of economics through his experience and master’s degree in international developmental economics from the School of International Service at American University in Washington, D.C. On March 8th, 2003, he wrote an analysis entitled “Promoting Growth and Prosperity in the Developing World through Economic Freedom,” published in Economic Perspectives. Brett D Schaefer is highly effective in his argument through use of established creditability, fabulous appeal to human emotion, the ability to be concise and powerful, and his ability to support his argument. He uses these means to argue that the assistance in volumes of hundreds of billions of dollars from developed nations, while intended for good, are not as effective in all the under developed countries if the country is not considered free to use that assistance to create lasting wealth and prosperity.
Mr. Schaefer not only relies on his own rooted creditability, but other sources of authentic validity. The argument for his argument does not fall on his word and logic alone. He uses the data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), reports from World Bank in conjunction with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), analysis by other economists, the Heritage Foundation, and current legislation passed by the former President George W Bush in 2004 which was The Millennium Challenge Account (MCA).
