Conversation with David Korten

David Korten will join us to share his current work on a new book and engage in conversation around the central theme – changing our story from one of “sacred money and markets” to one of a “living economy on a living Earth”. He is interested in exploring this theme with members of the Occupy Forum to test the extent to which this frame has potential broad resonance:

“Our defining cultural story determines what we most value as a society and how our institutions structure our relationships with one another and nature. We are in terminal crisis because we have our story badly wrong. To find a path to a viable human future, we must replace the “sacred money and markets” story around which we currently organize with a” sacred life and living Earth” story that acknowledges our nature and reality as living beings born of a living Earth born of a living universe.”

David Korten’s seminal book and international bestseller, When Corporations Rule the World, is considered by many to be the “bible” of the global Living Democracy Movement, and helped explain globalization to thousands. It has become a modern classic with a message that seems increasingly prophetic with each passing day. Its central message is a clear and unequivocal wake-up call to humanity. Korten also wrote The Post-Corporate World: Life After Capitalism; The Great Turning:
From Empire to Earth Community; Agenda for a New Economy: From Phantom Wealth to Real Wealth, among others.

Time will be allocated for announcements.
