I am excited to announce that I have been appointed as a Senior Fellow at the Richard Paul Richman Center for Business, Law and Public Policy at Columbia University.
The new center will encourage collaboration among Columbia’s most prominent business and legal scholars to generate research that will inform public policy and help to unite scholarship with its real-world applications in both business and law. The Richman Center will also provide a platform for the promotion of dialogue and the exchange of ideas on timely and relevant issues, while inspiring future generations of students to pursue careers at the nexus of business, law, and public policy.
In that vein, CNN ran an exclusive article I co-authored with my latest “Odd Couple” partner, David Stockman. We are advocating for a ‘big’ approach to attacking our current economic stagnation, including both revenue increases and federal spending cuts. The strongest sentiment of the article, though, is that of collaboration. While David and I have disagreed on much, we both strongly agree that the only way for the U.S. to rise out of the current economic situation is to work as one, with the goal of doing what is best for America and Americans.
I am looking forward to bringing together people to address issues like these as well as other matters pertaining to economic growth and economic/social equality at Columbia.
