It is a must-read book that we should all read, as we all participate in global economic activity in one way or another. Valuable information is presented by a large number of collaborators, academics, university students, corporate executives and scientists, whose discussions were taking shape in this keen proposal presented by the author. Although the economy dominates most of the human spheres, however the educational texts of the same have not been updated in 70 years and is based on the theory of 1850, which is destructively impacting society and the planet. Kate Raworth proposes a new economic theory based on humanity long-term goals, which considers a critical human deprivation, social foundation, ecological ceiling and critical planetary degradation, where one can find a well-being space for humanity and the nature of the planet . She presents this model using the power of visual framing, drawing a diagram representing the jump of the 7 main thought forms of the 20th century towards the new proposals for the 21st century economics. The author bases her theory on an extensive research of diverse cutting-edge currents of thought and progressive and innovative schools, and she presents its convergences to integrate them towards a new economic model, that before the challenging context that we face and our values, serves better to our purposes. My gratitude to the Publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to review the book
