Agenda For a New Economy

Written by David Korten

Dr. David Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World, The Post-Corporate Economy and Getting to the 21st Century,explains why Wall Street economy, which is based on unsecured loans, Ponzi schemes and gigantic salaries for sociopathic financiers and which has created a house of cards of phantom wealth, must be replaced by Main Street economy.  Main Street economy values the wellbeing of the people and is based on real labor by real people who make real contributkions to a real society and who have real assets.  Unlike Wall Street, which views undesirable outcomes and environmental degradation as unfortunate externalities to the goal of maximizing corporate profits, Main Street economy works to promote wellbeing and minimize negative externalities.  Dr. Korten gives us an agenda for getting there.
