DOUGHNUT ECONOMICS

7 Ways to Think Like a 21st Century Economist

By Kate Raworth. Using a "doughnut" image to depict a sweet spot of human prosperity, this innovative rethinking of economic policies offers a new compass for guiding global development, government planning, and corporate strategy while setting new standards for what economic success looks like. Using ideas from ecological, behavioral, feminist, and institutional economics, the book addresses the key question of how to transform the current growth-obssessed system into a more balanced and sustainable one that enables both humans and the planet to thrive. Seven ways to fundamentally reframe understanding of what economics is and does are presented, including breaking addiction to growth, redesigning economic systems to be of greater service to people, and creating economies that are regenerative and distributive by design. Advanced students. Index. Bibliography. Appendix. Notes. Illustrated. Chelsea Green. 309 pages. ©2017.
