A Conversation With David Korten

Portrait of Christa Hillstrom In 1995, YES! co-founder David Korten wrote When Corporations Rule the World, followed by a series of books that helped birth the New Economy movement.

P.S. We have two exciting internships open in online reporting and online graphic storytelling. If you know any new journalists interested in gigs that are heavy on research, writing, data, and fun, please let them know!
