... is scheduled as the guest speaker for the 193rd meeting of the Karl Hess Club, to convene on July 19, 2010.


     Richard Newcombe on "Why I'm leaving L.A. and taking creators with me."

Rick Newcombe, who's long battled the City of Los Angeles regarding business taxation, says: "I'd love to speak again before the Karl Hess Club -- specifically on my battle with Los Angeles.  It has been truly amazing, and while things are looking good at the moment [Sept. 15, 2009], I won't know for sure until a new law is passed -- which I have been assured will happen."

Many have proposed that poor tax policy by municipalities is a prime cause of business failure and the difficulty in new business formation.  Politicians don't "get" that many businesses "vote with their feet" by moving to more business friendly environments.  Some businesses move across a street -- from Los Angeles to Culver City -- while others cross a continent -- from California to Texas or Delaware.

Mr. Newcombe, an entrepreneur who built a worldwide enterprise -- Creators Syndicate -- in his hometown of, Los Angeles, will explain why he may now move his business out of L.A.

He will also discuss the business of syndicating content in an era of transition among "old" and "new" media -- and on newspapers' continuing relevance in preserving freedom.

     About the Speaker:

Richard Newcombe is the founder and CEO of Creators Syndicate, a leading supplier of content from artists and commentators to a variety of media.
