About the film The Economics of Happiness
Many people believe globalization causes more problems than it solves. Vandana Shiva, Bill McKibben, David Korten, and Zac Goldsmith are among the many scholars and activists interviewed in this documentary, which suggests that corporations and global banking are the cause of increased fundamentalism, climate change, species extinction, financial instability and personal stress. At the same time, people around the world are coming together in the hopes of building more human scale, local economies.

This film is being shown in conjunction with the Economics of Happiness Conference, taking place October 12-14 in Santa Fe. Visit or for more information, or call call 505-663-6392.
