Gonzalo Schwarz is the President & CEO of the Archbridge Institute. Gonzalo focuses on researching and writing about the American Dream, social mobility, the economics of human flourishing, economic development, and entrepreneurship. Gonzalo has a BA in economics from the Catholic University of Bolivia and an MA in economics from George Mason University.
Growing up around the world in Uruguay, Israel, Ecuador, and Bolivia, he saw firsthand how poverty and socioeconomic challenges affect individuals and societies. This led him to a lifelong curiosity about what leads people to flourish and achieve their fullest potential. In 2016, Gonzalo pursued his own American Dream and founded the Archbridge Institute, an organization dedicated to removing barriers that prevent individuals across the globe from bettering their lives.
Gonzalo has written for media publications such as USA Today, Newsweek, The Hill, Real Clear Politics, the Washington Examiner, and Merion West, among others. He is the author of the Archbridge Institute’s annual American Dream Snapshot and editor of two publications focused on social mobility in Europe and Latin America. Gonzalo has more than a decade of experience working for think tanks and policy organizations. Prior to founding the Archbridge Institute, Gonzalo served as Director of Strategic Initiatives at the Atlas Network, where he worked for six years.
In his free time, Gonzalo loves to spend time with his family, read, and watch fútbol (the appropriate name for soccer).
