Ecomics is the mother tongue of public policy. It dominates our decision-making for the future, guides multi-billion-dollar investments, and shapes our responses to climate change, inequality, and other environmental and social challenges that define our times. Pity then, or more like disaster, that its fundamental ideas are centuries out of date yet are still taught in college courses worldwide and still used to address critical issues in government and business alike. That's why it is time, says renegade ecomist Kate Raworth, to revise our ecomic thinking for the 21st century. In Doughnut Ecomics, she sets out seven key ways to fundamentally reframe our understanding of what ecomics is and does. Along the way, she points out how we can break our addiction to growth; redesign money, finance, and business to be in service to people; and create ecomies that are regenerative and distributive by design. Named after the w-iconic doughnut image that Raworth first drew to depict a sweet spot of human prosperity (an image that appealed to the Occupy Movement, the United Nations, eco-activists, and business leaders alike), Doughnut Ecomics offers a radically new compass for guiding global development, government policy, and corporate strategy, and sets new standards for what ecomic success looks like. Raworth handpicks the best emergent ideas--from ecological, behavioral, feminist, and institutional ecomics to complexity thinking and Earth-systems science--to address this question: How can we turn ecomies that need to grow, whether or t they make us thrive, into ecomies that make us thrive, whether or t they grow? Simple, playful, and eloquent, Doughnut Ecomics offers game-changing analysis and inspiration for a new generation of ecomic thinkers.
