Product description

Review

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

Proposes a new economic model – one that embeds the human economy within the natural world and within society, rather than being distinct from either. ― The Ecologist

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

There are some really important economic and political thinkers around at the moment – such as Kate Raworth's Doughnut Economics . . . I get the sense that a major period of new thinking and political creativity is coming. -- Andrew Marr ― Guardian
