Two-thirds of the world’s population live in countries that are now more unequal than they were in 1980.
Our politicians are hung up on keeping the growth curve rising. But does GDP really tell us all we need to know about a country’s wealth and well-being? In this new RSA Short, Kate Raworth makes a powerful argument to look beyond economic growth alone for a true measure of prosperity and progress.
Raworth is a renegade economist teaching at Oxford University, and is focused on the rewriting of economics to make it a fit tool for addressing the 21st century’s social and ecological challenges.
