Nearly two years after the economic meltdown, joblessness and foreclosures are still endemic, wall street executives are once again getting massive bonuses and Washington doesn't have the will to make desperately needed fundamental changes to the economy. Change will have to come from below. This second edition of Agenda for a New Economy is the handbook for that revolution. In this revised and updated edition, 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. We will lose nothing in the process, because, as Korten ably demonstrates, the supposed services wall street offers are simply a con game and having reluctantly given up on the possibility of any substantial change from the top, Korten now offers more in-depth advice on how to mount a grassroots campaign to bring about an economy based on shared prosperity, ecological stewardship and citizen democracy.
