Robert spoke with Kate Raworth at the first Regenerative Futures Summit in Boulder Colorado about her book Doughnut Economic: 7 Ways to Think Like a 21st Century Economist.
They also discussed the power of images, her upbringing in a home with a photographer father, jazz singing and how she collaborated with animators to communicate her economic ideas.
Kate trained at Oxford University as an economist, before leaving the discipline in the 1990’s to work supporting small business owners in Zanzibar, co-authoring the Human Development Report for the UN and researching for Oxfam. Most recently, Kate returned to economics to explore the mindset needed to address some of the most challenging social and ecological problems of the 21st century.
