Doughnut Economics is the Futures Book Club featured read for October!
Doughnut Economics: 7 Ways to Think Like a 21st Century Economist – by Kate Raworth
In Doughnut Economics, Oxford academic Kate Raworth identifies the seven critical ways in which mainstream economics has led us astray – from selling us the myth of ‘rational economic man’ to obsessing over growth at all costs – and offers instead an alternative roadmap for bringing humanity into a sweet spot that meets the needs of all within the means of the planet. Ambitious, radical and provocative, she offers a new cutting-edge economic model fit for the challenges of the 21st century.
There is so much passion and energy surrounding this book, and it is a warmly welcomed addition to the Club’s collection of books that prompt us to envision how the world could be made differently.
New reads stick around a while. This book will be discussed in November, January & February.
