David Korten's Agenda for a New Economy
"The most important book to emerge thus far on the economic crisis. David Korten provides real solutions."
Peter Barnes, author of Capitalism 3.0

:: READ AN EXCERPT

 

A Declaration of Independence from Wall Street

Dear Reader,

Have you noticed that in all the discussion over economic stimulus and bailouts, there is a critical missing piece? No one is asking whether we really need Wall Street at all, much less whether we should spend billions (or is it trillions?) to keep it afloat.

Until now. David Korten, in his brilliant new book Agenda for a New Economy, shows that Wall Street has become a liability and we can replace it.

We want you to be the first to have access to this book. Below you'll find three ways to get it ahead of its launch. For a preview, you can take a look at this excerpt where David imagines the economic address to the nation that President Obama should give.

Wishing us all a hope-filled new year,
Sarah signature
