Renegade Economists Marilyn Waring, Kate Raworth and Elinor Ostrom

Kate Raworth came to international attention in 2017 with the publication of her most recent book: Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think like a 21st-Century Economist. She critiques the Gross Domestic Product system of accounting – including the so-called Green or sustainable growth models.

In Kate Raworth’ doughnut model the goal is to raise the well being of humans trapped inside the doughnut hole, while placing limits on climate change and pollution that are near or have crossed the outer circle of the doughnut.

Kate Raworth is teaching at Oxford University’s Environmental Change Institute, and at the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership. Over the last two decades she has worked as Senior Researcher at Oxfam, and as a co-author of the United Nation’s Human Development Report.

Kate Raworth has written extensively for media including The Guardian, The New Statesman, Newsweek, andWired, and has done programs with BBC Radio 4, The World Service, ABC and NPR, as well as television with Thom Hartmann, Laura Flanders, CNN, Al-Jazeera, BBC, and CBC.

Whos Counting ” Marilyn Waring on War, Sex, Lies and Global Economics (Part TWO) ” ARCHIVE
This film was a secret favorite for those who wanted to decode the economic system of perpetual, destructive growth. And for those who looked for an intelligent explanation of the connection between economics and war. Marilyn Waring was only 22 when she was first elected to the New Zealand Parliament.

This segment is about war. Under the GDP accounting system war is the biggest growth industry of all. When John Maynard Keynes and Richard Stone invented the GDP formula during WWII they explicitly designed is as a system of: how to pay for the war. This British system was imposed on the world in 1953. No country may be a member of the UN, deal with the IMF or World Bank unless they do their national accounting based on the GDP
And some say that unlimited growth along with globalization has driven the wars and environmental destruction of the past 50 plus years. In spite of the magnitude of the problem with Growth and GDP accounting there is an encouraging aspect. If a global system can be designed by two economists, Mr. Keynes and M. Stone, and if it can get imposed ” not so long ago ” in 1953 ” it is possible and necessary to design a different system and set a date for change in the near future.
