Product Description

'"Sustainability in all things" should be our species' philosophy; the Doughnut Model our compass for the journey.' SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGHA new reissue of the Sunday Times bestseller and Financial Times and Forbes Book of the Year, now with a new afterword.Wide-ranging and accessible - Raworth draws on cutting-edge insights from ecologists, feminist thinkers, and experts in development.Kate Raworth is an economist focused on transforming economic theory and practice so that it reflects the social and ecological realities of the 21st century. She is a Senior Teaching Associate at Oxford University's Environmental Change Institute and Professor of Practice at Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. In response to the international interest generated by this book, she co-founded the Doughnut Economics Action Lab to connect and collaborate with changemakers worldwide who are starting to put the ideas of Doughnut Economics into practice.

The book that redefines economics for a world in crisis.

Relentless financial crises. Extreme inequalities in wealth. Remorseless pressure on the environment. Anyone can see that our economic system is broken. But can it be fixed?

In Doughnut Economics, Oxford academic Kate Raworth identifies the seven critical ways in which mainstream economics has led us astray - from selling us the myth of 'rational economic man' to obsessing over growth at all costs - and offers instead an alternative roadmap for bringing humanity into a sweet spot that meets the needs of all within the means of the planet. Ambitious, radical and provocative, she offers a new cutting-edge economic model fit for the challenges of the 21st century.
