We invite you to join the Working Centre, Divest Waterloo and the Princess Cinemas to join us for a showing of the film “The Economics of Happiness.”

What if the goal of economics was not growth but human happiness?

Starting from this simple premise this documentary features a chorus of voices from six continents calling for systemic economic change. The world is moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. On the one hand, government and big business continue to promote globalization and economic growth. At the same time, all around the world people are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economics based on a new paradigm – an economics of localization.

The Economics of Happiness is part of our Ecology-to-Scale film series which is a part of our larger Finding Our Place series – a year of reflection and conversation on the thought of Wendell Berry.
