The Economics of Happiness

20 11 2011

If you’re in the Hamilton area you’ll want to check this out…

A free screening of the film The Economics of Happiness, Monday, November 21st at 7pm, St. James Church, 137 Melville St. in Dundas. Tickets available from Picone Fine Foods, 34 King St. West in Dundas or email: Entrance is free but tickets required.

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. [promotional poster]. Film by Helena Norberg-Hodge, Steven Gorelick, and John Page.

This screening is being hosted by Dundas In Transition and by Eco Wham, The Ecological Churches of West Hamilton, and sponsored by Picone Fine Food.
