Product Description

Even though we face a world of tremendous inequality, social breakdown, excessive consumerism and growing spiritual emptiness, there is a way out. David Korten says, “The choice is in front of us. We have the power and the right to make a choice that can open up a future beyond anything we can imagine now. Or we can choose not to make that choice and end up as a failed evolutionary experiment.” Find out what that choice entails and discover strategies for creating a just, sustainable, and compassionate society that is economically stable too.

Author of ten books, including the bestselling When Corporations Rule the World (Berrett-Koehler 1995 ), and The Post-Corporate World: Life After Capitalism (Berrett-Koehler 1999).
