Kate Raworth spoke on October 4, 2017, at the Stockholm Resilience Centre on her new book Doughnut Economics. Published in the UK and US in April 2017 the book has already been translated into Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch and Japanese.

Kate Raworth says that economics dominate public policy and our decision-making for the future. It guides multi-billion-dollar investments, and shapes our responses to climate change, inequality, and other environmental and social challenges that define our times. However economic theories as taught today are centuries out of date. That's why it is time, Raworth says, to revise our economic thinking for the 21st century.

From Kate Raworth 35 minute talk I chose her fascinating retelling of the history of economics from Adam Smith to Paul Samuelson and her indictment of neoliberalism, market fundamentalism and the universally imposed system of economic growth, expressed in the GPD, the Gross Domestic Product.

Sea Change Radio: The Myth of Meritocracy: John Brittain on Legacy Preference

Date Uploaded: 2017-10-17 17:27:56.0
The official subject matter of Sea Change Radio is environmental sustainability. This week, however, we are deviating from that to talk about a topic that we believe is inextricably linked to sustainability: stratification in education. We are talking with law professor, civil rights advocate, and educational diversity expert, Prof. John C. Brittain, about educational practices that perpetuate social, racial, and socioeconomic exclusiveness. Elite private schools were once restricted to wealthy white young men. Since the 1960s we have seen some progress at these schools - they all admit women, most have scholarship programs to make room for the non-wealthy, and they generally boast of need-blind admissions practices. But there is one hidden practice, often overlooked, which runs counter to all of that progress: the practice of legacy admissions. That is, giving preference to applicants who have a family connection to the school. The majority of elite educational institutions in this country do this. For example, in 2017, a full 41% of Harvard's incoming freshman were legacies. Logic tells us that generation after generation, this sort of admission preference can't be doing much for these schools' demographic diversity. Professor Brittain and host Alex Wise discuss how legacy admission practices serve as affirmative action for the privileged, the irony that the practice thrives in the United States which holds itself up as a model meritocracy and how schools' justifications for the ongoing use of legacy preferences don't hold up to a reasoned analysis.
