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 (…) 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.
