Wall Street or the Common Good + When Corporations Rule The World

Program #KORD007-KORD001.

First Program: Wall Street or the Common Good

The Occupy Wall Street movement is growing. Mumia Abu-Jamal from his jail cell writes: "In Lower Manhattan's Zucotti Park, renamed 'Liberty Square' by the demonstrators, the cast of thousands swell in rebellion against the betrayals by the banks, Wall Street's relentless greed, the plague of joblessness and the craven servility of the political class, both Republicans and Democrats, to their moneyed masters. In short, the central focus of their protest is capitalism, greed writ large. Begun mostly by unemployed urban youth, it has drawn the presence and support of public workers, students, teachers and a considerable number of gray hairs. That's because social discontent is so widespread that it is spreading like wildfire. From Wall Street to Denver, Los Angeles, and beyond. Demonstrations are springing up like mushrooms after a storm, in protest to crony capitalism." 

Second Program: When Corporations Rule the World

In this important and timely program, David Korten documents the devastating human and environmental consequences of the largely successful efforts of global corporations to reconstruct values and institutions everywhere to serve their narrow financial interests. The market system is blind to all but its own short-term gains. Korten suggest ways to create a just and sustainable economic system.
