About Doughnut Economics

Doughnut Economics, or “The Doughnut”, is a visual framework coined by Economist Kate Raworth, and expanded upon in her 2017 book Doughnut Economics: How to think like a 21st Century Economist.

‘The Doughnut’ consists of two concentric rings: a social foundation, to ensure that no one is left falling short on life’s essentials, and an ecological ceiling, to ensure that humanity does not collectively overshoot the planetary boundaries that protect Earth’s life-supporting systems. Between these two sets of boundaries lies a doughnut-shaped space that is both ecologically safe and socially just: a space in which humanity can thrive.
