The Economics of Happiness is a documentary film about the worldwide movement for economic localization.
*****NOTE: although the screening listed below has passed, the DVD is available for lending to any group who would like to show it!
A free showing and discussion will be held this Sunday, January 27th from 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 2810 North Meridian Road, Tallahassee. Light refreshments will be available.
The film 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.
Climate change and peak oil give us little choice but to localize, to bring the economy home. The good news is that as we move in this direction we will begin not only to heal the earth, but also to restore our own sense of well-being.
