Frederik Pfeiffer reviews Kate Raworth's "Doughnut Economics - Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st Century Economist" for the Czech Sociological Review.

"In this book Kate Raworth takes her own discipline to court. Her ruling: economics is severely flawed."

"Raworth presents evidence stretching from the time of the field’s emergence as a separate scientific discipline through to its failure to handle big challenges like the Great Recession and climate change."
