An Update on our Fellow, Hazel Henderson
The Academy is happy to share that our Fellow, the wonderful Hazel Henderson, recently participated in a webinar entitled “Sixty Minutes with Ecological Economists Hazel Henderson and Kate Raworth”. Scroll down below to watch a recording of this interview.
Modern, industrialized economics strives for endless growth. The social policies they promote, by their nature, lay waste to natural systems and exploit vulnerable populations. The result is global crises and disruptions, such as the 2008 financial meltdown, climate breakdown, even the COVID lockdown, and extreme wealth concentration and global inequality. Renegade economist Kate Raworth brings a counter vision of human prosperity based on making economics fit 21st-century realities. Laid out in her book, Doughnut Economics, Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist, Kate is building on the insights of Hazel Henderson, host of this SSF webinar series and President of Ethical Markets. Hazel has been critiquing the limitations of economics and its statistics in steering complex industrial societies for 60 years.
