    The Economics of Happiness

    We will be showing the multiple-award-winning film, ‘ The Economics of Happiness’ on Friday 9th December, at 7pm at Buckfastleigh Town Hall.

    The film (more info at www.theeconomicsofhappiness.org) looks at how Globalisation and the banking system are causing massive problems worldwide, and what we can do about it…

    ‘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 localisation.’

    Join us to watch the film, discuss what we can do here in Buckfastleigh, and share a cuppa.

    There is an admission fee of £3 (£2 unwaged/low income).
