Economics of Happiness video stillAs we face environmental and economic crises, we are also being confronted with a crisis of the spirit. This documentary, directed by Helena Norberg-Hodge, Steven Gorelick, and John Page, shows us how focusing on consumer culture, globalization, and GDP measurements keeps happiness just out of reach—and how embracing our local communities can help change it.

Click here for an interview with director Helena Norberg-Hodge on why she believes localization is the economics of happiness.
