A model developed by Kate Raworth and first published in 2012 in an Oxfam report and later in a book titled Doughnut Economics: seven ways to think like a 21st century economist. The Doughnut Economics model builds on the Planetary Boundaries model. It proposes an economic mindset that’s fit for the 21st century context and challenges. Not a set of policies and institutions, Doughnut Economics is rather a way of thinking that brings about the regenerative and distributive dynamics that this century calls for. Drawing on insights from diverse schools of economic thought – including ecological, feminist, institutional, behavioural and complexity economics – it sets out seven ways to think like a 21st century economist in order to bring the world’s economies into the safe and just space for humanity.
