Our Team

  • Amee Kamdar Amee Kamdar Founder

    Amee Kamdar is an economist with extensive experience in both the commercial and non-profit sectors. Just a year out of grad school, she started a consulting firm with Steve Levitt and Nobel Laureates Daniel Kahneman and Gary Becker. The Greatest Good set out with a vision of solving big problems in the philanthropic realm, and it allowed Amee to delve into the workings of a number of charitable organizations. Frustrated by the inefficiencies of traditional fundraising, she has since been searching out innovative ways to make a big impact on the world of giving.

    At just 29 years old, Amee was named one of Crain's 2012 "40 under 40", recognized as one of the youngest influential leaders in big data and applying academic economics to business. She also served as Associate Director of Research at the University of Chicago's Becker Center on Price Theory, a leading institute in the field of empirical microeconomic research. She holds a degree from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, as well as both an MBA and a PhD in economics from the University of Chicago.

  • Janet Moehring Janet Moehring Founder

    Janet Moehring joined the Greatest Good after a year of working in management consulting. She was the fifth member to join the firm and worked alongside Steve Levitt of Freakonomics and other world renowned economists and psychologists. After four years, she was named a Managing Director of the firm.

    Janet has managed major engagements across a variety of industries, from nonprofit to retail to insurance to gem grading. She studied Economics and Mathematics at the University of Chicago and graduated Phi Beta Kappa. She brings a personal interest and knowledge of gaming to Spin for Good, as she has visited Las Vegas annually since she was three. Janet is passionate about continuing her work in philanthropy by transforming the gaming industry.

  • Steve Levitt Steven Levitt Founder

    Steve Levitt is best known as the author of Freakonomics, which spent two years on the New York Times bestseller list, and its follow-up, Superfreakonomics. He is widely recognized as one of the world's most creative economists and a leader in the field of behavioral economics. In 2004, he was awarded the John Bates Clark Medal, given to the most influential economist under the age of 40, and in 2006, he was named one of TIME magazine's "100 People Who Shape Our World."

    Steve has conducted extensive academic research into the casino and online gaming industries, and he has held a life-long personal interest in gaming, as a horseracing bettor and high stakes poker player. He has also dedicated himself to several charitable causes over the years, both personally and professionally.

    Currently, Steve is a professor of Economics at the University of Chicago and a Managing Partner at the Greatest Good, a consulting firm he started with Amee Kamdar and Nobel Laureates Gary Becker and Daniel Kahneman.
