In The Economics of Happiness filmmaker Helena Norberg-Hodge examines how—in resistance to globalization—communities are successfully relocalizing their economies and treasuring the rich uniqueness of each local place.
Discover how communities around the world are coming together to re-build on a more human scale with respect for the environment and the rights and needs of people. We’ll hear from voices from six continents, including Vandana Shiva, Bill McKibben, David Korten, Samdhong Rinpoche, Helena Norberg-Hodge, Michael Shuman, Zac Goldsmith and Keibo Oiwa. They tell us that climate change and peak oil give us little choice: we need to localize, to bring the economy home. The good news is that as we move in this direction we will begin not only to heal the earth but also to restore our own sense of well-being.
