Contents:
Introduction -- All the flows, history too -- The necessity of a circular economy? -- From linear to circular -- Through the macroscope -- Consumer to user -- Social capital, markets and money in a circular economy -- The sharing economy -- Devolved, digital and open-source manufacturing and the rise of urban mining -- The regenerative biological cycle : at scale -- Education in a changing world -- The golden thread: systems, digital and a circular economy -- Reason in an age of unreason
Summary: Since the first edition of this volume published in 2015, the global economy has remained relatively subdued and pressure on resources, especially in terms of waste and carbon emissions, continues. More than ever, the circular economy gives the direction of travel, and appears as a model for economic prosperity. This revised volume contains one entirely new chapter, and with a foreword by Ellen MacArthur and contributions from Walter Stahel from the Product-Life Institute, Geneva and Jocelyn Blériot, Executive Officer at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, it expands on the role of digital; how the economy really works and how we can act within it. The other major revision is in rewriting the final chapter, as it becomes obvious, argues the author, that current social tensions and the rise of populism mean that the evolution of an attractive economic model is no longer just a desirable development, but a matter of some urgency.
