22nd April 2020

In the third of a series of weekly Enrichment tasks for economics students, here is a task which considers whether the extensive government measures being taken to keep economies going and to allow economic recovery provide an opportunity to rethink the basis on which the economy operates.

This task encourages students to study the model devised by economist Kate Raworth, in which solving the Economic Problem has to be balanced with the long-term needs of the planet.
