Rethinking Economics towards the UN Global Goals

0 comments

At the Headquarters of the United Nations in New York the second Partnership Exchange Conference was held since the Sustainable Development Goals were launched for the Agenda 2015 - 2030. Especially the State of the World presented by professor Jeffrey Sachs of the Earth Institute at Columbia University was impressive and highly motivating to go forward!

Former US vice-president Al Gore launched his latest book An Inconvenient Sequel describing all the latest details about climate change and the why how and what to help Mother Nature forward to the future we want.

Most interesting new book is Doughnut Economics written by professor Kate Raworth of Oxford University about rethinking economics in the most fundamental way. The doughnut was chosen as the picture of a ring between minimum incomes needed for human lifestyles and maximum possibilities of Mother Earth to deliver the resources for our daily needs. The book is written in a very daily language and most people read it untill the very last page. A bestseller for all economists and consumers as well!
