The Institute for Economic Freedom and Opportunity at The Heritage Foundation
Drew Gonshorowski focuses his research and writing on the nation’s new health care law, including the repercussions for Medicare and Medicaid, as a policy analyst in the Center for Data Analysis at The Heritage Foundation. He also studies economic mobility and the Austrian school of economics.
Gonshorowski, who joined Heritage in 2011, holds a master’s degree in economics from Suffolk University in Boston, Mass., where he studied public choice and public finance. He received a bachelor of science degree in economics from Hillsdale College.
As a member of the team in the Center for Data Analysis (CDA), he helps maintain scores of databases to support strategic research; provide confidential reviews of legislation for members of Congress; and supply data and analysis for news organizations. Among agencies and programs included in CDA’s databases are the Census Bureau, Internal Revenue Service, Social Security and Medicare.
Along with a variety of analytical models, the databases allow Heritage to calculate how policy changes affect individuals and families as well as the economy. Gonshorowski runs and maintains the micro-simulation model.
In his free time, he likes to read and write about Austrian economics. He also enjoys playing music, cooking and fly-fishing. A native of Bryan, Ohio, he grew up in Hillsdale, Mich., and currently resides in Falls Church, Va.
