Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist
Kate Raworth claims that the economy does not work. It has been unable to predict, let alone avoid, the financial crises that have shaken the foundations of our societies. Their obsolete theories have allowed the existence of a world in which extreme poverty persists while the wealth of the super-rich increases year after year. And its blind spots have led to policies that are degrading the living world on a scale that entirely threatens our future.
Is it possible to fix it? In this speech on Doughnut Economics, Oxford scholar Kate Raworth identifies seven crucial aspects in mainstream economics that have led us astray, and establishes a roadmap to lead humanity to a sweet spot where they can meet everyone's needs with means of the planet. Your audience will hear how can we create a cutting-edge economic model for the 21st century. A model in which a doughnut-shaped compass points the way to human progress.
Creating a Circular Economy: Business in the Doughnut
Kate Raworth says that focusing economic models on pure growth is destroying our planet and creating vast wealth gaps between the uber-rich and the poor. A new model is needed, and Kate argues in her bestselling book "Doughnut Economics" that to thrive in the 21st century we need a circular economic system that is respectful of our planet and our limited resources. In this speech, Kate will explain the basics behind the Doughnut model and how we can achieve sustainable development models that implement a true circular economy.
