The Economics of Happiness – is Globalization Retreating?


I cannot wait to see the movie The Economics of Happiness. For a long time I have been a real fan of globalization – and the underlying technology that makes it possible.

However the trailer (see below) of The Economics of Happiness tells a different story – the real desire of the community to go back to the “village atmosphere”, where once again manufacturing was local. And indeed, the economics of this seem to back up this move.

    That sounds immensely interesting, although personally I’m pessimistic about the chances of genuine change happening without a catalyst, be it a financial crisis, public acknowledgment of Peak Oil, or definitive evidence for global warming(some people such as our esteemed leader of the Opposition won’t believe it until water is lapping at his front door). Unfortunately we may require a famine in the “West” before we change our (corporate) ways.
