Expert Platform 2: Vinny Tafuro

Author’s note: The Expert Platform podcast was launched in support of Tekton Press. Although I shuttered the business and put the podcast on indefinite hold, I’m keeping the episodes online on YouTube. I was fortunate to have wonderful guests like Vinny. I learned a lot from our conversation, and I hope you benefit from it as well.

Vinny Tafuro is the author of Unlocking the Labor Cage, a cutting-edge economist, and visionary futurist.

If you’re interested in the near future, this episode is for you.
