Relentless financial crises. Extreme inequalities in wealth. Remorseless pressure on the environment. Anyone can see that our economic system is broken.

But can it be fixed?

Oxford academic Kate Raworth has identified 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 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, Doughnut Economics offers a new cutting-edge economic model fit for the challenges of the 21st century.
