Volume 2, Issue 3 *An international best-seller*Endorsed by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and World Economic Forum Founder Klaus Schwab This second edition updates the reader on the deepening human crisis of the global economy. The gap between rich and poor continues to grow, and people continue to exploit the planet. Korten writes of the new global citizens' movement of activism in response to corporate globalization, and of civil society groups' efforts to restructure global economic governance. He transitions from a critical analysis of the new world order to an optimistic focus on the role of spirit and culture in a ""civil-ized"" society.
