The Economics of HappinessThe Economics of Happiness
Global corporate power and consolidation meets resistance from people around the world re-building societies on a more human scale.

The Economics of Happiness (USA, 2011; 67 min.) 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.
