KATE RAWORTH – on finding the world’s economic sweet spot.
Presented in association with the Swindon Philosophical Society
Economics matters. Its theories are the mother tongue of public policy, the rationale for big investments and the tools we use to manage our planetary home.
Many of its fundamental ideas are centuries old and out of date. What kind of economics will serve us in the future?
Senior Research Associate at institutes in Cambridge and Oxford, UN report writer and renegade economist, Kate Raworth is author of Doughnut Economics, which offers a radical rewrite of 200 years of economic theories and, taking a long view forward, identifies seven insights that help to bring twenty-first century economics into the global sweet spot and lead us to a new model, one that serves a thriving and sustainable domestic and global economy.
