It’s Our Money with Ellen Brown – Globalization vs. Happiness – 11.01.17

We’ve been told that marketplace productivity is irrefutable evidence of economic efficiency and a precursor to consumer happiness.  But that meme is a self-serving axiom designed to consolidate wealth, power and systems control into the hands of global corporations.  Ellen’s guest Helena Norberg-Hodge is the producer of the award-winning documentary The Economics of Happiness and author of Ancient Futures. She is also founder and director of the NGO Local Futures, which has been a pioneer in the emerging global-to-local movement.
