I’ve just been informed of Kate Raworth’s book in a French news paper’s article announcing the publication of the edition translated in French. I’ve not read it yet, but as soon I’ve seen the doughnut economics’ chart, I thought of another chart I saw years ago. From the transcription of K. Raworth’s interview for this article, I fell that she never seen the latter before and I can’t check yet in her bibliography.
Therefore, I’d like to share with you what could be seen a preliminary sketch of the doughnut economics’ chart (attached file). It is extracted from a relatively old but very good and inspiring book wrote in the late 1970s by a French economist, René Passet and untitled “L’économique et le viant”. I guess that the latter could be seen as a precursor of the doughnut economics. I unfortunately don’t know whether this book was translated in English or not.
Also, I’ve seen among the comments posted on the platform, an advise to read another relatively old book by Joël de Rosnay untitled “Le Macroscope”. Note that R. Passet and J. de Rosnay belonged to a reflexion group (Le Groupe de Dix) that gather together scientists, historians, economists, lawers, as well as sometimes politicians during the first half of the 1970s.
