You can get a free copy of the Spring 99
issue of YES! The cover alone is enough to lift your spirits! It's a
gorgeous picture taken at the Fairview Gardens farmers' market in Santa
Barbara, a delightful example of what Dave Korten, in his opening essay,
calls the "mindful market." His article is drawn from his new book The
Post-Corporate World that is about to hit the bookstores. This issue of YES!
is packed with lots of examples of locally rooted enterprises that
demonstrate the many viable alternatives to the current economy's
single-minded obsession with maximizing shareholder gain. There's also a
great story on what's happening on the Multilateral Agreement on Investments
told in language that anyone can understand -- you may find it useful to
distribute to those whose Eyes Glaze Over with talk of trade agreements.
There's a terrific piece by Alisa Gravitz that frames the uncertainties
around the millennium computer bug as an opportunity for positive change.
And Peter Barnes has an excellent piece 'Who owns the sky?" on how we could
turn all this pollution-trading permit stuff into something that would
benefit us all.
