Thriving Economy: Not Rocket Science – Kate Raworth (#220)
Human civilization can thrive while living within sensible limits imposed by a finite system. “Renegade” economist Kate Raworth manages to tell the truth about what we’re getting wrong in economics, while at the same time inspiring activism and optimism. In this conclusion of a two-part interview, Kate finishes her list of seven fundamentals to achieving a healthy 21st century economy.
Her recently published book, Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist, was called “brilliant, thrilling and revolutionary” by columnist George Monbiot. This conversation includes some of Raworth’s ideas about how we can put into practice what she is preaching.
Kate Raworth is a Senior Visiting Research Associate at Oxford University’s Environmental Change Institute, and Senior Associate at 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.
