Pada tahun 1980-an, Kapitalisme menang atas Komunisme. Tahun 1990-an Kapitalisme diam-diam menang lagi atas Demokrasi. Yah, asal tahu saja, demokrasi pun dapat dijual dengan harga penawaran tertinggi, dan bahwa pasar bebas tanpa batas - yang kini gencar dikampanyekan lewat jargon "globalisasi" - ternyata dirancang untuk diatur secara terpusat oleh mega-korporasi global yan ...more

I read this in Burma and he's got an interesting (albeit outlandish) take on how to build up a locally-focused, modern international economy where people are prioritized over corporations.
The Post-Corporate World After Capitalism is predictably baffling due to the author’s viewpoint of capitalism. Capitalism is anti-poverty. If capitalism were to be abandoned across the world, starvation and utter poverty would spread to all parts of the world. If one were to think of Africa, many associate poverty. Why? South Africa is the only capitalist economy in the entire continent while all other countries have some form of centrally planned economies. Korten describes all the actions that ...more
This is a very good reading and people must read this.
When i learning about development in my field study,i was wondering why have some people seem criticize about development when the development itself help us to achieve the top rank country in the world so i read many references,do some research and finally i'm still didn't get the best conclusion and answer of what i wonder. At last,i've found this book,after i've finished read this,i can conclude and open my mind that development is good bu

I think the most important bit of insight that one can walk away from this book with is that community is something we have to redevelop in order to live more fulfilling lives and we do that by contributing to the whole as individuals but with group objectives in mind and that 'life exists at the edge of chaos'. It requires a fine balance of order and chaos; environmental degradation induced by capitalist consumption is probably the biggest threat to it.

If you are seriously pissed about American politics and you believe yourself to be a republican, a democrat, an independent, a conservative, liberal, or a libertarian, read this book. You are not thinking nearly cynical enough. If you're not sure, try to buy a vote in this country and see how far back of the line you are.

Democracy? Just maybe not.

buku yang sangat amat bagus. pembahasannya sangat mendalam dan benar2 menggugah kita untuk merubah sistem yang ada di masyarakat saat ini. meskipun begitu, hampir setengah pembahasan dari buku ini belum aku mengerti. mungkin ilmunya belum sampai. biar pun begitu, aku bertekad untuk membacanya sekali lagi...

Wow! A little (ok, a lot) depressing. Especially the first 3 chapters but the concepts are so thought-provoking. Some of the ideas may be a little too revolutionary for some but the more I read, the more they resonate. Second & third parts were a bit more hopeful with concrete ideas of things to do. I liked that.

Joe Sherman
Fascinating. This puts history in the longest possible perspective -- starting with the formation of planet earth after the big bang. The planet will still be here after our species is extinct. Korten does, as always, bring the injustices and destructiveness of the corporate-dominated world economy sharply into focus.
