#54 Roman Krznaric and Kate Raworth: Doughnut Economics and Being a Good Ancestor
Show Notes

Roman Krznaric is a public philosopher who writes about the power of ideas to change society. His latest book is The Good Ancestor: How to Think Long Term in a Short Term World. His previous international bestsellers, including Empathy, The Wonderbox and Carpe Diem Regained, have been published in more than 20 languages.

Kate Raworth is a renegade economist focused on making economics fit for 21st century realities. She is the creator of the Doughnut of social and planetary boundaries and co-founder of Doughnut Economics Action Lab.

Together, they address the one core question of “What Could Possibly Go Right?” with thoughts including:

  • That Doughnut Economics offers a model to “meet the needs of all people within the means of the Living Planet”.
  • That “one of the ways that the world changes is through empathy”, which can overcome our social divides.
  • That we need to be good ancestors and “step into the shoes of people in tomorrow's world as citizens of the future.”
  • That recognizing and respecting boundaries is good for our own and the planet’s health, while also being a means to unleash our creativity.
