Agenda for a New Economy: 2nd edition
by David KortenType: Book
Published June, 2010: _____________________________ A Report of the New Economy Working Group.
A Declaration of Independence from Wall Street
Nearly two years after the economic meltdown joblessness and foreclosures are still endemic, Wall Street executives are once again getting massive bonuses, and there doesn’t seem to be the will in Washington to make desperately needed fundamental changes to the economy. Change will have to come from below. Agenda for a New Economy is the handbook for that revolution.
In this revised and updated edition Korten offers more in-depth advice on how to mount a grassroots campaign to bring about an economy based on locally owned, community oriented “living enterprises” whose success is measured as much by their positive impact on people and the environment as by their positive balance sheet.

"It’s time for a fundamentally new economic model—Agenda for A New Economy is a much needed roadmap for those ready to get started." —Annie Leonard, author and creator of The Story of Stuff.
