David Korten: Transofrming the Economy Beyond Bailouts
27 Mar 2009
presented by The Jamaica Plain Forum

Sunday, April 5th, 2009
7:00 - 9:00pm
FREE

First Church in Jamaica Plain, Unitarian Universalist
6 Eliot St.
Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

Today's economic crisis is the worst since the Great Depression.
However, as David Korten shows, the steps being taken to address it do nothing to deal with the reality of a failed economic system.

Korten identifies the deeper sources of the failure: Wall Street
institutions that have perfected the art of creating phantom "wealth" without producing anything of real value. Our hope lies not with Wall Street, but with Main Street: in an economy that is locally based, community-oriented, and devoted to creating a better life for all.

In his new book, The Agenda for a New Economy: From Phantom Wealth to Real Wealth, will be available for purchase and signing.

David Korten is a leading critic of corporate globalization and a visionary proponent of a planetary system of local living economies. His international best seller When Corporations Rule the World, helped frame the global resistance against corporate globalization. His book, The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community, illuminates the significance of this resistance by placing it in the historical context of 5,000 years of Empire.

David is co-founder and board chair of the Positive Futures Network, which publishes YES! A Journal of Positive Futures, founder and president of the People-Centered Development Forum, and a board member of the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies. He is also a founding associate of the International Forum on Globalization and a major contributor to its report on Alternatives to Economic Globalization.
