February 8 – TED Talk: A healthy economy should be designed to thrive, not grow (2018, Kate Raworth)

What does a sustainable, universally beneficial economy look like? “Like a doughnut,” says Oxford economist Kate Raworth.  In a stellar, eye-opening talk, she explains how we can move countries out of the hole — where people are falling short on life’s essentials — and create regenerative, distributive economies that work within the planet’s ecological limits.
