The Economics of Happiness [trailer]
by the International Society for Ecology and Culture.
At least in this trailer of a film currently being produced, the spokespeople talk about the problems with the "system", nevertheless the producers of the film frame the problem as one of "regulation".
The Economics of Happiness 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.
