A renegade economist dares to take on the mainstream economics establishment with a radical rewrite of 200 years of theory. 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 Pity then – or more like disaster – that its fundamental ideas are centuries out of date, but still dominate decision-making for the future.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, this book 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.

Doughnut Economics, promises that the economic future will be fascinating by hand-picking the best emergent ideas – ranging from ecological, feminist, behavioural, and institutional economics to complexity thinking, and Earth-systems science – to reveal the insights of eclectic economic re-thinkers.

The Henry Jackson Society is delighted to invite you to an event with Kate Raworth. Using humour and metaphor, but always deeply grounded in the theory itself, Kate Raworth will offer a new model for a green, fair and thriving global economy.
