Summary
NEW EDITION, REVISED AND UPDATED Nearly two years after the economic meltdown, joblessness and foreclosures are still endemic, Wall Street executives are once again getting massive bonuses, and our leaders in Washington lack the will to make desperately needed fundamental changes to the economy. Change will have to come from below. Agenda for a New Economy is the handbook for that revolution. In this revised and updated edition David Korten has fleshed out his vision of the alternative to the corporate Wall Street economy: a Main Street economy based on locally owned, community-oriented “living enterprises” whose success is measured as much by their positive impact on people and the environment as by their positive balance sheet. We will lose nothing in the process because, as Korten ably demonstrates, the supposed services Wall Street offers are simply a con game. And Korten now offers more in-depth advice on how to mount a grassroots campaign to bring about an economy based on shared prosperity, ecological stewardship, and citizen democracy
Assigning source
NEW EDITION, REVISED AND UPDATED Agenda for the New Economy provides the most fundamental and far-reaching critique yet published of what is really wrong in our economic system and the path forward to creating a new economic system that better meets human needs. This Second Edition updates the arguments and information throughout the book in the light of developments in 2009, and it offers a new chapter that shows how the 2009 programs of the Obama administration and other governments are not getting at the root causes of the system failures nor making the deep changes that are needed if we are to avoid ongoing economic, social, and environmental crises
