Description

We humans live by stories, says David Korten, and the stories that now govern our society set us on a path to certain self-destruction.

In this profound new book, Korten shares the results of his search for a story that reflects the fullness of human knowledge and understanding and provides a guide to action adequate to the needs of our time.

Korten calls our current story "Sacred Money and Markets." Money, it tells us, is the measure of all worth and the source of all happiness. Earth is simply a source of raw materials. Inequality and environmental destruction are unfortunate but unavoidable. Although many recognize that this story promotes bad ethics, bad science, and bad economics, it will remain our guiding story until replaced by one that aligns with our deepest understanding of the universe and our relationship to it. Offering a hopeful vision, Korten lays out the transformative impact adopting this story will have on every aspect of human life and society.
