No longer available

ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre

Talks & ideas

At a time when economic disparity continues to widen and the health of the planet is under severe threat, many question the tenet that growth is the appropriate measure of economic sustainability and success. British economist Kate Raworth is one such inquisitor. 

In her book Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st Century Economist - longlisted for the 2017 Financial Times McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award - Raworth issues a clarion call to act creatively and reframe the economy, by “meeting the needs of all within the means of the planet”. She presents her thesis in conversation with Rod Oram.

Supported by Platinum Patrons Dame Rosie & Michael Horton.
