Synopses & Reviews
*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.
In this follow up to his best-selling When Corporations Rule the World, the author provides a detailed blueprint for a less destructive and more humane world economic system. Reprint.
