In 2012 Vinny Tafuro published “Corporate Empathy”, capitalizing on the conversations, debates, and economic shifts being catalyzed by the growing rights, freedoms, and responsibilities of corporations as a result of corporate personhood. Vinny is a Tampa Bay based entrepreneur and economist. His most recent book, “Unlocking the Labor Cage,” proposes a broad update to global economic theory to accommodate the information age.
His Corporate Empathy brand uses sardonic and pointed commentary as a challenge to dated economic theories, holding companies to human standards. Vinny is also the founding president of the Gasparilla Interactive Festival, Tampa Bay’s showcase of cutting-edge technologies and digital creativity and the Conscious Capitalism Florida Chapter, whose purpose is to seek out and connect the role models of Florida’s conscious business community.
