From Corporate Rule to Civil Society

Program #KORD003. Recorded in Seattle, WA on May 05, 2001.

In 1995, former international development insider David Korten published his influential book, When Corporations Rule the World. At the time, corporate globalization went largely unopposed. That has changed over the last few years as hundreds of thousands of people across the globe have taken to the streets to protest the growing power of transnational corporations and the goverments and the financial institutions that support their rule. David Korten proposes how we can move from protesting corporate globliaztion to regaining the power of the people - to move from corporate rule to civil society.
