Quote about David Korten: When the institutions of money rule the world, it is perhaps inevitable that the interests of money will take precedence over the interests of people.

David Korten Sayings: To create a world in which life can flourish and prosper we must replace the values and institutions of capitalism with values and institutions that honor life, serve life's needs, and restore money to its proper role as servant.
