A Declaration of Independence
from Wall Street

Dear Reader,

David Korten hit a chord with Agenda for a New Economy and its call for abolishing Wall Street. In his new revised and greatly expanded edition, David fleshes out his vision for a replacement—a decentralized economy based on resilient communities, local businesses, and ecological systems.

Global greed is out. Local sharing is in. The Wall Street system failed us; this book is a great guide as we build the alternatives.

We want to give you the chance to see this new edition first. Below you’ll find three ways to get it ahead of its release, and at a special YES! price, 22% off.

Want a taste of what’s inside? Check out this excerpt where David shows us 5 Ways to Know if You’re Making a Difference.

Wishing you all the best,
