New book 'The Circular Economy: A Wealth of Flows' by Ken Webster

May 20, 2015

Where will prosperity come from in a global economy facing rising consumer demands, environmental challenges, volatile resource prices, and the end of easy credit?

In ‘The Circular Economy: A Wealth of Flows’, the latest book published by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Ken Webster argues that our linear ‘take-make and dispose’ economy is a 19th century heritage adrift in the 21st century reality. The time is right to move towards a circular economy – a regenerative model based around feedback-rich flows allied to new business models.

Ken Webster is Head of Innovation at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. For this publication, Ken has sought contributions from leading experts including colleague Jocelyn Bleriot, and Walter Stahel of the Product-Life Institute, Geneva.
