Clean Tax Cuts (CTC)

The Grace Richardson Fund pioneers powerful new free market policy solutions for critical issues stuck in partisan gridlock. One such new idea, Clean Tax Cuts (CTC), applies Ronald Reagan’s supply-side tax cuts to the problems of pollution and climate risk.

A conservative solution with transpartisan appeal, CTC offers something of highest core value for left and right: an ever-cleaner planet and tax cuts; cheaper clean energy and less government, an affordable answer to climate risk, and sustainable growth and prosperity.

To encourage others to get involved in the development of this idea, GRF President Rod Richardson will announce the Earth Day Texas – Clean Capitalism Challenge at the Global Climate Finance Action Summit, held during the COP 22 UN Climate Talks in Marrakech, Morocco.

Rod first launched the idea publicly on Earth Day 2016 through a series of articles in The American Spectator, then through public presentations at AREDay 2016 in Aspen, CO in June, as well as at American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC) forums at the Republican National Convention, and in Washington, DC.

You can read the “hot of the press” Clean Tax Cuts Charrette Report, generated from the September 2016 event at Columbia University, the GRF CTC white paper, CTC Key Points list, and other CTC background documents within this website.
