Both hard-hitting and inspirational, The Economics of Happiness reveals some uncomfortable truths about today’s global economy, financial instability and environmental breakdown worldwide.
In stark contrast, it shows how people around the world are already engaged in exploring alternative visions of prosperity: uniting around a common cause to build more ecological, more human-scale, more local economies.
David Suzuki: “A powerful film that cuts deeply to the heart of the global crisis. Magnificent!”
