Marked by the appealing authority of a British academic, Kate Raworth's narration supports the altruistic tone of her message. The renegade British economist is known for her view that economics should study the complex dynamics of social well-being and environmental sustainability instead of GDP and simplistic supply-demand models. Sounding urgent but never alarmist, her presentation has everything you would want to hear in an audiobook that has a humanistic, somewhat anti-establishment, message. When economics focuses on human and planetary sustainability, she says, it can provide data the state can use for judging how government policies can serve the needs of the masses, facilitate productive human interaction, and sustain life in an ecosystem that we are clearly on the way to destroying.
