Even though we face a world of tremendous inequality, social breakdown, excessive consumerism and growing spiritual emptiness, there is a way out. David Korten says, "The choice is in front of us. We have the power and the right to make a choice that can open up a future beyond anything we can imagine now. Or we can choose not to make that choice and end up as a failed evolutionary experiment." Find out what that choice entails and discover strategies for creating a just, sustainable, and compassionate society that is economically stable too. (hosted by Michael Toms)
