Second edition of 'The Circular Economy: A Wealth of Flows' released on Kindle

December 02, 2016

Since the first edition of 'The Circular Economy: A Wealth of Flows' was launched 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

The second, revised edition, which is exclusively available on Kindle, contains an entirely new chapter, expanding on the role of digital technology; on how we see the world; how the economy really works, and how we can act within it. Another major revision is the final chapter, which has been rewritten as it has become obvious, argues the author, that current social tensions and the rise of populism mean that evolution of an attractive economic model is no longer just a desirable development, but a matter of some urgency.

The second edition has a foreword written by Ellen MacArthur and includes contributions from Walter Stahel from the Product-Life Institute, Geneva and Jocelyn Blériot, Executive Officer at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
