Growth is not enough

3 minutes

How growth is an insufficient measure of economic success in an unequal world

Using audio drawn from a Royal Society of Arts (RSA) lecture by the UK economist Kate Raworth, Growth is Not Enough is a succinct analysis of the disparity between that which economic growth measures and the things we really care about. Rather than focusing on growth, Raworth proposes that we shift our attention to measuring and protecting something more fundamental – ‘human wealth, natural wealth, and social wealth’.
