Film: The Economics of Happiness

“Going local” is a powerful strategy to help repair our fractured world – our ecosystems, our societies and our selves. Far from the old institutions of power, people are starting to forge a very different future…

This eagerly awaited film, The Economics of Happiness, tells the story of 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, 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.

One Response to Film: The Economics of Happiness

  1. Lisa Bashert says:

    This screening of Economics of Happiness went really well — about 120 attended. The discussion afterward went deep into people’s personal discomfort with our isolation and discomfort. Some wonderful connections were made. Next film is on Thursday April 7 — “Fresh.” It will be shown after the 6 pm Growing Hope monthly potluck at the Ypsilanti Senior Center, 1015 N Congress Street Ypsilanti.
