Tony Guidotti is a JHD Fellow at the Edmond & Lily Safra Center for Ethics. As part of the Justice, Health, and Democracy Impact Initiative, Tony leads a research portfolio exploring the principles of economic dignity and how policy paradigms – including community wealth building, property-owning democracy, distributism, and civil economy – provide opportunities for local-rooted, comprehensive, and inclusive forms of prosperity. His work also examines the role of non-financial forms of wealth in integral human development and the measurement of individual and community wellbeing.
Tony has served as a Research Partner for Catholic Relief Services in Bangladesh and Uganda, studying how humanitarian cash transfers could be used to improve refugee financial inclusion, and as a Livelihood Consultant with Food for the Poor in Honduras. Most recently, Tony led a Census Bureau technology development sprint as a Consultant with New America and was an Innovation Fellow with enFocus, partnering with municipal and county governments to design community-centric policy solutions. In addition to his role at the Center, Tony is a member of the Economy of Francesco’s ‘Co2 of Inequalities’ working group.
