‘The Economics of Happiness’: Localizing Marin’s Economy.
Feature film http://www.theeconomicsofhappiness.org/ on the pitfalls of globalization, followed by facilitated discussion of how Marin can achieve equitable prosperity and resiliency rooted in where we live.
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.
The Away Station is cosponsoring the event with Transition Mill Valley.
“Live music and munchies! Learn about local organizations that are helping our community make the transition.”
