Doughnut Economics

“This sets out seven options for thinking like a 21st century economist. Is economy the same as growth? ‘There is no alternative’ is forcefully refuted here. Raworth suggests other objectives: the retention of a quality world and social aspects. The balance is better if the boundaries on both sides, hence the doughnut, are not exceeded. You can apply this doughnut to tourism: objectives for the population, for travellers and also objectives for the planet and the population that works in the sector. Social status is not particularly strong across the board. We must ask questions about this too.” — Seppe Dams, Network Everyone Deserves a Holiday
