The Economics of Happiness

The Economics of Happiness is a new film by Helena Norberg-Hodge, Steven Gorelick & John Page. It’s about the transition from a global economy towards a local one, or in their words:

The Economics of Happiness describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. On the one hand, government and big business continue to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power. At the same time, all around the world people are resisting those policies, demanding a re-regulation of trade and finance—and, far from the old institutions of power, they’re starting to forge a very different future. Communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm – an economics of localization.
