D. from the Stanford University Graduate School of Business. He served in the Vietnam War as a captain in the United States Air Force. After the war, Dr. Korten spent some time as a visiting professor at the Harvard University Graduate School of Business and later spent many years working with the U.S. Agency for International Development in Asia.

Korten also used two models to describe man's relationship with Earth — the "Cowboy" and "Spaceship" models. According to the cowboy model, most people view the Earth having plenty of resources to support the human race and believe that these resources are constantly being renewed. In reality, says Korten, the earth is more like a space capsule in that resources are much more limited and steps must be taken to renew them actively.
