Replace the Gospel of Money: An Interview With David Korten

repost from FB
If more of our money circulated in our communities rather than the Wall Street casino …………. the deadly, insanely colossal, blood clot – economic divide, would no longer block the arteries of life, killing 28,000 kids daily with starvation alone, and travel to the planets and nearest stars would have been achieved 2-3 decades ago, opening up far greater possibilities than smog, traffic nightmares and ecological destruction.

Replace the Gospel of Money: An Interview With David Korten

“It comes back to this: Are we a part of nature? Or apart from nature?”

David Korten began his professional life as a professor at the Harvard Business School on a mission to lift struggling people in Third World nations out of poverty by sharing the secrets of U.S. business success. Yet, after a couple of decades in which he applied his organizational development strategies in places as far-flung as Ethiopia, Nicaragua, and the Philippines, Korten underwent a change of heart. In 1995, he wrote the bestseller When Corporations Rule the World, followed by a series of books that helped birth the movement known as the New Economy, a call to replace transnational corporate domination with local economies, control, ownership, and self-reliance.

This month, Korten, who is also the co-founder and board chair of YES!, publishes a new book challenging readers to rethink their relationship with Earth—indeed, with all creation, from the smallest quantum particle to the whole of the universe. The world needs “a new story,” he says. “If most species, including Homo sapiens, are to survive, we must recognize Earth as a living being.” Korten talked about his ongoing metamorphosis with YES! Executive Editor Dean Paton.

Energy’s Critical and Evolving Relationship to ‘Economy’

Some excellent questions put forth, including…. “society has a long history of not being particularly good at proactive change. We rarely, if ever, institute policy before a trainwreck”….. Now more than ever, energy’s critical and evolving relationship to ‘economy’ needs attention, as the scientific parameters derived from advanced energy systems will make for a smooth transition.

As part of Singularity University’s Future of Work series, I had a chance to sit down with Neil Jacobstein, the…

So, what does economics mean?

The once American, Now Global Corporate Economy, like the Titanic………

Excluding immediate major breakthroughs in advanced energy systems, the economy, like the Titanic, will be too big to change course to avoid collision, breakdown and collapse.

Too Big to change

America’s next economic crisis is already here

As afore mentioned, excluding immediate major breakthroughs in advanced energy systems, the accompanying scientific wisdom toward sustainable survival with unlimited prosperity will not be realized.

Investors wild with anticipation for cancer drug prices to soar from $100,000,00 per pill, to one million dollars per pill!!!!

Says it all

Factors tightening the Noose in our revised, unbridled, dysfunctional, predatory, discriminatory economic system that is causing harm to the very systems that support human life:

Fast-tract TPP provisions to trump national and local laws, including the U.S. Constitution, and will not be subject to review or revision by any national legislative or judicial body—including the U.S. Supreme Court. Earnings (EBITDA) are supreme, upheld by secrecy. TPP is being drafted in secret, claims to be settled in tribunals comprised of trade lawyers whose identities are secret, The secret gatherings of unelected government officials and corporate representatives in which agreements like the TPP are negotiated have become de facto transnational legislative bodies, drafting international laws the democratically elected legislative bodies of signatory countries then rubber stamp. Together with the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision, there is no longer an argument what we are creating.

This Conundrum of Corporation and Nation  would be non- existent, impossible, had the long suppressed advanced energy systems, so necessary to continued human survival, been allowed to surface…….as the natural laws the advanced energy systems reveal convey  spontaneous self-realization towards sustainable survival, health, prosperity, and evolutionary growth parameters….
