Kate Raworth – Doughnut Economics

Mainstream economics – as taught in universities, debated in the media, and utilized by governments – is based on outdated assumptions, leaving it ill-equipped for guiding us today. Alternative approaches – including ecological, feminist, and evolutionary economics, along with systems thinking and Earth-system science – have valuable insights if we are to achieve human rights and well-being for all within the means of this one planet. It’s time to put these insights at the heart of a new economic toolkit.
