Hunter Lovins argues that the current economic model subsidises incumbent technologies and corporate profits, while socialising losses and spreading inequalities. And then there's the effect the economy has on ecosystems. However, she also sees light at the end of the tunnel. She points to the rapid rise of renewable energy, to companies that perform better when they have sustainability as a touchstone for innovation, and to communities that are taking control of their energy needs. Taking inspiration from the likes of John Fullerton and Kate Raworth, Hunter proposes we take a regenerative approach to economics.
