Tim Hodgson reviews 'Doughnut Economics' by Kate Raworth

This book is suffused with strong values, and it is now the fourth book on my ‘investment essentials’ reading list. So it is possible that my personal values fit so precisely that the intellectual content is not that strong. However, I believe I am being objective when I argue that Raworth’s intellectual arguments are as strong as her values. I think this is an excellent book which offers a brave and coherent new framework – with the intention of changing economics and by doing so, changing public policy choices. It is also written in an attractive and engaging style, with interesting anecdotes and important references to economic history. It was, for me, a pleasure and a joy to read.
