Summary:

"In this revised and updated edition, David Korten has fleshed out his vision of the alternative to the corporate Wall Street economy: a Main Street 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. Korten now offers in-depth advice on how to mount a grassroots campaign to bring about an economy based on shared prosperity, ecological stewardship, and citizen democracy."--Back cover
