(1 review) Write a Review
*The Sunday Times Bestseller* *A Financial Times and Forbes Book of the Year* *Winner of the Transmission Prize 2018* *Longlisted for the FT/McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award 2017* `The John Maynard Keynes of the 21st century.' George Monbiot, Guardian `This is sharp, significant scholarship . . . Thrilling.' Times Higher Education 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? 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 thoughtful, she offers a new, cutting-edge economic model fit for the challenges of the 21st century. `Raworth's magnum opus . . . A fascinating reminder to business leaders and economists alike to stand back at a distance to examine our modern economics.' Books of the Year, Forbes `There are some really important economic and political thinkers around at the moment - such as Kate Raworth's Doughnut Economics.' Andrew Marr, Guardian `An admirable attempt to broaden the horizons of economic thinking.' Martin Wolf, Books of the Year, Financial Times `A compelling and timely intervention.' Caroline Lucas MP, Books of the Year, The Ecologist
