About me

Industry Non-Profit
Location New York, NY, United States
Introduction Roderic Randolph Richardson is the author of 21stCentrist and the GreenEnergyTaxCuts Blogs. He is the originator of a group of new policy ideas: supply side environmentalism (AKA Green Energy Tax Cuts), pro bono medical reform, and the use of natural (vs artificial) humanitarian systems. Each of these achieves popular humanitarian or environmental goals through targeted tax cuts promoting naturally existing humanitarian systems (i.e., traditional pro bono medical care, or workable alternative energy businesses), because doing so do is far more simple, effective and sustainable than the more common tax/spend/subsidize/regulate approach of many artificial, complex, big government social engineering schemes. Rod is also the President of Morningside Holdings, LLC, a private investment fund; President of the Grace Richardson Fund; a mediator, and when time permits, a glass sculptor. He holds an MBA from The Stern School of Business, NYU, and a BA from Columbia College, Columbia University. Below is a link to Rod's glass sculptures and other activities: Rod's Glass Sculptures
