As an economist and author October 2017 is a month full of amazing opportunity for introducing the Unlocking the Labor Cage community to a wider global audiance.
Evening Tide Talks Screening
On Thursday evening, October 12, 2017 join friends and family at FIVE Labs in Tampa’s Westshore District for the FREE world premiere screening of Evening Tide Talks with Debbi Stone of the Florida Aquarium featuring our discussion of Unlocking the Labor Cage and my proposal for a social capital indexed economy.
The episode airs in October on the Tampa Bay Arts & Education Network (TBAE) and features economist and author Vinny Tafuro and Florida Aquarium vice president of education, Debbi Stone discussing Capitalism in the Twenty-First Century.

European Economic Summits
During the second half of October I will be in Europe following invitations to participate in two economic summits to discuss the future of the global economy.
On October 21-23 I will be attending ‘Reawakening‘ hosted by the Institute for New Economic Thinking to discuss “the Origins of Economic Ideas to the Challenges of Our Time” in Edinburgh, Scotland. The following week on October 26 and 27 I will be participating in an economic workshop to discuss Solutions for the Environment, Economy, and Democracy (SEED) hosted at the University of Siegen, Germany by the Center for Communication and Civic Engagement at the University of Washington and other economic think-tanks and partners.
During these two European summits I look forward to engaging with other thought leaders who like myself know that the economics of the last century no longer sufficiently describe societal reality. That like any other technology ever invented, we must #UpgradeEconomics to allow us to #GoBeyondGDP.
Follow the Journey
October promises to be an exciting month of sharing our community and ideas with other people who, like us want to solve our most difficult societal challenges. We will be using the hashtags #LaborCageTideTalk and #LaborCageEuroTour along the way.
