“This passionate film presents a clear and articulate vision of what a shift in the scale at which we do things would look like…Very timely and powerful.”

Economic globalization has led to a massive expansion in the scale and power of big business and banking. For the majority of people on the planet life is becoming increasingly stressful. We have less time for friends and family and we face mounting pressures at work.

The Economics of Happiness describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. Government and big business continue to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power. But all around the world people are resisting those policies. Communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm – an economics of localization.
