Join us for our next Monthly Movie night and ‘The Economics of Happiness’
‘The Economics of Happiness’ features a chorus of voices from six continents calling for systemic economic change. The documentary 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.

Thank you for this most interesting post. The Economics of Happiness deserves the widest distribution, particularly following the election. If enough of us take on board the spirit and culture of the presenters it will spread through our community and who knows, even into the parliaments of our land! Barrie Oldfield
