Voices from Six Continents.

The Economics of Happiness features a calling for systemic economic change. The documentary describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. While government and big business continue to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power, people around the world are resisting those policies and working 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.

and all of the people some of the time,
but you can’t fool ALL of the people ALL of the time.

The pathological pursuit of profit and power.

The documentary shows the development of the contemporary business corporation, from a legal entity that originated as a government-chartered institution meant to affect specific public functions to the rise of the modern commercial institution entitled to most of the legal rights of a person. Taking its status as a legal “person” to the logical conclusion, the film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist’s couch to ask “What kind of person is it?” What the study illustrates is that in the its behavior, this type of “person” typically acts like a dangerously destructive psychopath without conscience. The film was nominated for over 26 international awards.
