We will enjoy the film The Economics of Happiness which 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, people around the world are resisting those policies – 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.

"A powerful new film that cuts deeply to the heart of the global crisis. Magnificent!"
– David Suzuki, Television presenter and environmentalist
