Why Wall Street Can’t Be Fixed.


I came across David Korten while viewing an ad in this month’s issue of UU World for the conference “Why Wall Street Can’t be Fixed and How to Replace It” (to be held April 3-5 2009 at the Rowe Conference Center (http://www.rowecenter.org)).

Dr. David C. Korten is an author and a leader in the global resistance against corporate globalization. He is probably best known as the author of the book When Corporations Rule the World. In this video, David explains how the US government was established to ensure the rights of the landed elite. The balance established after WW2 between business and the rising middle class was upset in the 70’s as the rich ruling class found power eroding. We see the effects of this today.

It is interesting to note David had not yet experienced the power of the internet in marshaling everyday people to elect a previously “unelectable” candidate (video created January 20, 2008).

This 11 minute video is a great view for anyone wanting to have a perspective on how we got to where we are (and how we may be able to get out of it).

Vodpod videos no longer available.
