Fran and David Korten, entrepreneurs, longtime anti-capitalist advocates for global economic justice, and married couple. They speak to us about their lifelong efforts to challenge the capitalist and privatizing schemes that have exacerbated global poverty and scarcity.
They are “waking up at a very fundamental level to questions that have to do with the nature of life, with the nature of being human, with our human possibilities, and most fundamentally our relationship with a living earth.”

Dr. David C. 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.
