Doughnut Economics

Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist

«I’ve never seen [the concepts in Doughnut Economics] laid out so clearly, compellingly, or cheekily. Social entrepreneurs, it’s doughnut time – and I strongly recommend that you take a bite.»

Four Books Every Social Entrepreneur Should Read, Forbes

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

Anmeldelser

«I’ve never seen [the concepts in Doughnut Economics] laid out so clearly, compellingly, or cheekily. Social entrepreneurs, it’s doughnut time – and I strongly recommend that you take a bite.»

Four Books Every Social Entrepreneur Should Read, Forbes

«Doughnut Economics shows how to ensure dignity and prosperity for all people.»

Huffington Post

«A compelling and timely intervention.»

Caroline Lucas MP, Books of the Year, The Ecologist

«A book you will need to know about . . . Kate writes beautifully . . . If only 10% of the ideas get implemented, the world will be a much better place.»

World Bank blog

«A sharp, insightful call for a shift in thinking . . . Raworth’s energetic, layperson-friendly writing makes her concept accessible as well as intriguing.»

Publishers Weekly

«Kate Raworth, formerly of Oxfam, shows that the undulations of equality and justice are really very profound . . . [Her] aim is to adjust human use of the processes of planetary dynamics so that the overall outcome of development is survival in peace, health, prosperity and companionship.»

British Academy Review

«An innovative vision about how we could refocus away from growth to thriving.»

Daily Mail

«A brand new way of conceptualising economic development without being tied to infinite growth . . . A useful idea.»

Guardian

«An admirable attempt to broaden the horizons of economic thinking.»

Martin Wolf, Books of the Year, Financial Times

«Another look at measuring growth . . . Raworth makes several key suggestions for reform.»

MoneyWeek

«Required summer reading for Labour politicians and activists.»

openDemocracy

«Asks some simple and pertinent questions. Why do we tax employment, through payroll taxes, but not the use of such scarce resources as fresh water, the Earth’s minerals, wood and soil? [Raworth's] biggest question, however, is one that terrifies all mainstream economists: is ‘growth’ endless?»

Andrew Marr, Spectator

«[Reveals] the huge hold in the standard economic model . . . offers a mountaintop view of the world.»

Knowledge@Wharton: The Journal of Wharton Business School

«Judiciously combining history, theory, anecdotes and diagrams, [Raworth] provides a narrative that is easy to follow . . . Worthwhile and challenging.»

Frontline

«A radical and solidly-argued book . . . Plausible and informative.»

El Pais

«This is sharp, significant scholarship . . . Thrilling.»

Times Higher Education
