The US economy at an average rate of 1.6% in 2016, and the country hasn’t consistently experienced strong growth of 3% to 4% per year since the 1980s and 1990s. Investor Russell Redenbaugh will present his ideas about how we should change the way we think about productivity and success in America. He will claim there is nothing that will stop a massive surge in the U.S. economy “if we get the policies right.” Russell will discuss his own policy ideas, and also those proposed by President Trump. He will explain why 3% growth is not only doable, but why that goal may be too modest.
Russell Redenbaugh’s achievements prove “if he can you can.” Blind from the age of 16, he became a successful investor and economist, a Commissioner on the US Civil Rights Commission serving under three US Presidents, and a three time gold medal jiu-jitsu world champion fighting sighted opponents. Obtaining the first MBA awarded to a blind student from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Business School, Russell went on to become Chief Investment Officer at a prominent Philadelphia money management firm that he helped grow to $6 billion in assets. After successfully selling the firm as one of six partners, Russell moved on to teach at Wharton, serve as a Commissioner on the US Civil Rights Commission and consult global corporations such as IBM, Applied Materials and KLA Tencor on “Shifting the Narrative” through redesigning business processes. Russell founded and is managing partner of Kairos Capital Advisors, a Registered Investment Advisor, where he manages his own and his clients’ money using strategies departing from flawed investment industry narratives.
