    In late September 2015, Hurricane Joaquin swept past the Bahamas and swallowed a pair of cargo vessels in its destructive path: El Faro, a 790-foot American behemoth with a crew of 33, and the Minouche, a 230-foot freighter with a dozen sailors aboard. From the parallel stories of these ships and their final journeys, Tristram Korten weaves a remarkable tale of two veteran sea captains from very different worlds, the harrowing ordeals of their desperate crews, and the Coast Guard’s extraordinary battle against a storm that defied prediction.

    Today's economic crisis is the worst since the Great Depression. However, as David Korten shows, the steps being taken to address it do nothing to deal with the reality of a failed economic system. It's like treating cancer with a bandage. Korten identifies the deeper sources of the failure: Wall Street institutions that have perfected the art of creating "wealth" without producing anything of real value: phantom wealth.

    The Occupy Wall Street movement named the core issue of our time: the overwhelming power of Wall Street and large corporations—something the political establishment and most media have long ignored. But the movement goes far beyond this critique. In this volume, the editors of YES! magazine bring together voices from inside and outside the protests to convey the issues, possibilities, and personalities associated with the Occupy Wall Street movement.

    "Ich weiß nicht, wie es weitergehen soll", sagte Christina Erichsen mutlos. "Achim war zu jung. Er stand erst am Anfang." Sie war hübsch und sehr traurig. Nur drei Jahre hatte ihre Ehe mit Dr. Achim Erichsen gedauert. Dann war er plötzlich nach kurzer schwerer Krankheit gestorben. Christina hatte die Arztpraxis verkauft und die kleine Lebensversicherung ausbezahlt bekommen. Dieses Kapital hatte sich inzwischen als zu bescheiden erwiesen. Sie würde wieder anfangen müssen als Sekretärin zu arbeiten.

    David Korten argues that global corporate consolidation of power is but one manifestation of what he calls "Empire", the organization of society by hierarchies of dominance that have held sway for the past 5,000 years. Empire has always resulted in misery for the many and fortune for the few. Now it threatens the very future of humanity. The Great Turning traces the ancient roots of Empire and charts its long evolution from monarchies to the transnational institutions of the global economy.

    Der kommende Tag würde ein Tag des Wartens werden, ein Tag der Vorfreude auf das Finale in der Nacht. Tränen rannen über seine Wangen, während das Gesicht nur Härte zeigte. "Ich werde mir Zeit lassen", flüsterte er, während er Milch und Zucker in seinen Kaffee rührte. "Ich werde mir Zeit lassen, wenn ich dich töte." Eine brutale Mordserie gibt der Polizei Rätsel auf. Die Opfer sind junge Frauen - attraktive blonde Engel mit blau lackierten Fingernägeln.

It documents the devastating human and environmental consequences of the successful efforts of these corporations to reconstruct values and institutions everywhere on the planet to serve their own narrow ends.
