Description

Blackwell's is delighted to announce Kate Raworth will be discussing her bestselling book 'Doughnut Economics' on Monday 16th October.

Economics matters. Its theories are the mother tongue of public policy, the rationale for multi-billion-dollar investments, and the tools we use to tackle global poverty and manage our planetary home. Pity then – or more like disaster – that its fundamental ideas are centuries out of date, but still dominate decision-making for the future. Instead of criticising the past, 'Doughnut Economics' takes the long view forwards, identifying seven insights to help the twenty-first-century economist bring humanity into the global sweet spot (shaped like a doughnut) that combines human prosperity with ecological sustainability.

Kate Raworth is an economist whose research focuses on the unique social and ecological challenges of the 21st century. She is a Senior Visiting Research Associate at Oxford University’s Environmental Change Institute, and also Senior Associate of the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership. From 2002 to 2013 she was Senior Researcher at Oxfam, before which she worked for the United Nations Development Programme where she co-authored the UN Human Development Report from 1997-2001.
