Both hard hitting and inspiring, ‘The Economics of Happiness’ demonstrates that millions of people across the world are already engaged in building a better world; that small scale initiatives are happening on a large scale. ‘The Economics of Happiness’ features a chorus of voices from six continents calling for systemic economic change. The film shows that countless initiatives are united around a common cause: rebuilding more democratic, human scale, ecological and local economies – the foundation of an ‘economics of happiness’
“It is good news indeed to find so persuasive an explanation of our ailing world as ‘The Economics of Happiness’. This film connects the dots between climate chaos, economic meltdown, and our own personal suffering, stress, loneliness, and depression. It presents the localization movement as a systemic alternative to corporate globalization, as well as a strategy that brings community and meaning to our lives.” (Joanna Macy, author World as Lover, World as Self)
