Interview with David Korten, an economist, author, activist, and prominent critic of corporate globalization. He is the author of four books but is perhaps best known for his bestselling 1995 book, When Corporations Rule the World, an examination of market libertarians' twisting of famed economist Adam Smith's teachings and a vision of an alternative sustainable economy based on small-scale, localized cooperative enterprises. Korten is also the cofounder and chair of YES! Magazine, a nonprofit publication focused on sustainability, alternative economics and peace.

In this Green Interview, Korten discusses what he calls our "suicide economy," how it works, how it has entangled us and the planet and how a "local living economy" based on real wealth, as opposed to "phantom wealth" could get us out from under this trap.
