I recently came across this interesting TED talk by the Oxford Economist Kate Raworth on the sustainable, regenerative and distributive economies.
Here is a longer version of her idea “Doughnut Economics” where she beautifully explains constraints or shortcomings of the Economics of the 20th Century.
A few years back I had written a blog on Mansoor Khan’s The Third Curve which touched the same topic (though not from an Economist’s lens). I had also written review of a book Growth Delusion which deals with futility of GDP as a measure of economic progress.
Do watch the above videos and check the earlier blog posts.
