This session brings together two prominent scholar activists with the “Alternative Economic Futures” community to help envision progressive localism as a sustainable and democratic path forward. An economy organized by and for global corporations is driving environmental collapse, wealth concentration, and governance failure. What would it take to create an economy organized by and for the people of self-reliant, self-governing place-based communities? And how can management scholars help inspire and enable this alternative? David Korten will share his work on a global system of bioregional economies and Joel Rogers will describe the political and technological underpinnings of this alternative future.
