"Before Globalization, There Was No Unemployment"

The video featured here is a trailer for the film: The Economics Of Happiness. To see the whole film: see

This film captures in just over an hour all of the central driving messages of Nextworldtv: globalization and Western consumer society, now creeping into every corner of the world, creates overworked unhealthy people trying to survive on an increasingly toxic planet, becoming alienated, broke, miserable and sick.

Localization of people, culture, food and the economy offers solutions to put us on track to a sustainable economy, prosperous in the truly important ways: creating balance in the whole system, using resources than we generate locally, having more time for more connection to ourselves, our work, our food and our community.

The Ladakhis of the Himalayas are profiled here in a perfect case history of what happens when globalization interferes and systematically destroys an indigenous culture.

Fascinating real numbers that underscore the inefficiency of the current system. It should not be cheaper to import food from halfway around the world than to produce it locally!

Economic analyst and author Helena Norbert-Hodge has done a beautiful job with this exquisite film and this most important message of our time.
