The Post-Corporate World: Life After Capitalism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

*Named as one of Future Survey's Super 70 books

*Written by a well-known globalization realist with extensive international experience in business

*Uses biological and evolutionary principles to illustrate the differences between capitalism and economic systems

Korten examines the fissure between the promises of new global capitalism and the reality of financial insecurity, inequality, social breakdown, spiritual emptiness, and environmental destruction. By drawing on insights from biology and evolutionary principles, Korten renders economic terms and ideas more understandable through the use of simple metaphors regarding living systems. The book prescribes economic solutions to capitalism's maladies, and provides readers with viable ways to work toward a healthy, sustainable economy.

Synopsis:

This text presents a critique of how today's corporate capitalism is destroying the things of real value in the world. It portrays a solution and a hopeful future by showing how to restore health to markets, democracy, and everyday life.

Synopsis:

A noted social critic and the author of ""When Corporations Rule the World"" offers a practical, human-centered alternative to global capitalism run amok.

Synopsis:

The author outlines numerous specific actions to free the creative powers of individuals and societies through the realization of real democracy, the local rooting of capital through stakeholder ownership, and a restructuring of the rules of commerce to create "mindful market" economies that combine market principles with a culture that nurtures social bonding and responsibility.
