Economics is broken, and the planet and people are paying the price.
Unforeseen financial crises. Extreme wealth inequality. Relentless pressure on the environment. Can we go on like this? Is there an alternative?
Doughnut Economics, or regenerative economics, explores how the economy should be a dynamic and distributive system that’s constantly evolving. In the 21st century, this design should be regenerative, so that our material and energy use work within the cycles of the living world and within planetary boundaries and distributive so that market dynamics share our abundance with all.
Oxford academic Kate Raworth lays out the seven deadly mistakes of economics and offers a radical re-envisioning of the system that has brought us to the point of ruin. Moving beyond the myths of ‘rational economic man’ and unlimited growth, Doughnut Economics zeroes in on the sweet spot: a system that meets all our needs without exhausting the planet.
Much of our Green New Deal policy sits in alignment with Doughnut Economics.
