‘Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st Century Economist’

Book Review

LE-050117-Bookreview-doughnutEconomicsIn her book, “Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st Century Economist,” self-proclaimed “renegade” economist Kate Raworth sets out seven key ways to reframe our understanding of what economics is and does.

Raworth, who is a senior visiting research associate at Oxford University’s Environmental Change Institute, writes that breaking the universal addiction to growth and redesigning money, finance and business to serve people will create an economy that is regenerative by design.

“Doughnut Economics” offers a new compass for guiding global development, government policy and corporate strategy, and sets new standards for what economic success looks like.

Raworth studies ecological, behavioral, feminist and institutional economics to address this question: How can we turn economies that need to grow, whether or not they make us thrive, into economies that make us thrive, whether or not they grow?

“Doughnut Economics” offers an analysis and inspiration for a new generation of economic thinkers. It is available at www.800ceoread.com for $22.40.
