David Korten - From Ego-nomics to Eco-nomics

Wiki Politiki with Steve Bhaerman

David Korten – From Ego-nomics to Eco-nomicsTransition to An Ecological CivilizationAired Tuesday, March 23, 2021 at 2:00 PM PST / 5:00 PM ESTInterview with David Korten, author of “When Corporations Rule the World”, and the “ Great Turning”“If we lose the Earth, there goes our GDP.” — Swami BeyondanandaIn 1972 a book was written that was designed to change the world. The book, the Limits of Growth, was the first report issued by the Club of Rome, an organization founded by Italian industrialist Aurelio Peccei and Scottish scientist Alexander King in 1968. The report warned that economic growth could not continue indefinitely because of resource depletion. It went on to sell 30 million copies in more than 30 languages, making it the best-selling environmental book in history.And yet … here we are nearly half a century later, and experiencing peak everything. The book was remarkably prescient … but apparently had little impact. What happened? And … what can be done about it?Our guest on Wiki Politiki, David Korten, is a member of the Club of Rome, and has devoted his work to bringing about what he calls an “ecological civilization.” Writes David about the “epic choice” we face:We can continue to seek marginal adjustments in the culture and institutions of the Imperial Civilization of violence, domination, and exploitation that put us on a path to self-extinction. Or we can transition to an Ecological Civilization dedicated to restoring the health of living Earth’s regenerative systems while securing material sufficiency and spiritual abundance for all people.Material sufficiency and spiritual abundance – the perfect way to shift from measuring gross national product, to enjoying gross national happiness.Dr. David Korten is the founder and president of the Living Economies Forum; co-founder, board member, and board chair emeritus of YES! Magazine; an associate fellow of the Institute for Policy Studies; and a full member of the Club of Rome.He worked for more than thirty-five years in business, academic, and international development institutions before he turned away from the establishment to become a leading critic of what he calls global suicide economy. He is the author of the international best-seller When Corporations Rule the World, along with The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community, Agenda for a New Economy: From Phantom Wealth to Real Wealth and Change the Story, Change the Future: A Living Economy for a Living Earth (2015).If you too recognize our need to make this life-or-death shift and are looking for ways YOU can make a difference, please join us this Tuesday, March 23rd at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET.To find out more about David Korten, please go here: https://davidkorten.org/Support Wiki Politiki — A Clear Voice In the “Bewilderness”If you LOVE what you hear, and appreciate the mission of Wiki Politiki, “put your money where your mouse is” … Join the “upwising” — join the conversation, and become a Wiki Politiki supporter: http://wikipolitiki.com/join-the-upwising/Make a contribution in any amount via PayPal (https://tinyurl.com/y8fe9dks)Go ahead, PATRONIZE me!

David Korten | Paradigm Shift, Earth Community, Ecological Civilization and the Phantom Wealth

Earth Charter Podcast

Quick Overview Dr. Korten recounts how he learned about poverty and awoke to nature  while he was on track to become a businessperson. His own mindset  experienced another sudden shift with an encounter on a plane. Over the  years, Dr. Korten has developed the concepts of earth community,  ecological civilization, phantom wealth and more. It is his strong  belief that human beings are living beings, rather than financial  beings, and we depend on a living earth. Moving past our current crisis  requires a fundamental reframing of our understanding of who we are, and  a deep institutional transformation. Critical of the UN SDGs, Dr.  Korten regards the Earth Charter as the best overview statement that  establishes the common ground towards a viable human future.

Rebuilding civilisation is impossible but we have to try - David Korten, activist, author, ex Harvard Professor.

Human Impact

David Korten is a former Harvard Business School professor, multiple author, activist, member of Club of Rome. His mission is to build an ecological civilisation, which is frankly impossible as no-one knows how but as he says we have to try. We talk about the Western destruction of Eastern values, sustainability, regeneration of land and community, how most CEO would be fired if they were truly aligned to their ethics. Why because their values do not represent the demands of shareholders. So it is our collective responsibility to start now as individuals building our community again.
