Both hard-hitting and inspiring,
The Economics of Happiness
demonstrates that millions of people across the world are already engaged in building a better world - that small scale initiatives are happening on a large scale.
The film shows that countless initiatives are united around a common cause:
rebuilding more democratic, human scale, ecological and local economies - the foundation of an 'economics of happiness'.
The film features a chorus of voices from six continents calling for systemic economic change, including David Korten, Bill McKibben, Vandana Shiva, Rob Hopkins, Richard, Heinberg, Juliet Schor, Michael Shuman,
Helena Norberg Hodge
, and Samdhong Rinpoche, the Prime Minister of Tibet's government in exile.
