Localization: Essential Steps to an Economics of Happiness


Localization: Essential Steps to an Economics of Happiness

By Helena Norberg-Hodge
Edited by Steven Gorelick and Kristen Steele

Thanks to our friends at Local Futures, we are offering a second free booklet on the subject they know best: Economics of Happiness.

From jobs to finance, from food to climate, from education to energy, the negative impacts of globalization are wide-ranging and deeply felt. This detailed report not only summarizes those impacts, it describes the policy shifts and grassroots initiatives that can move us towards the local and, thereby, towards a better world.

Throughout nearly 60 pages, this report looks at the current state of our economy, discusses what localization looks like, and offers ideas for how to get there. Get your copy today and be sure to subscribe to their Economics of Happiness blog.

Climate Change or System Change

Local Futures works to renew ecological, social and spiritual well-being by promoting a systemic shift towards economic localization. A pioneer of the new economy movement, Local Futures has been raising awareness for four decades about the need to shift direction – away from dependence on global monopolies, and towards decentralized, regional economies.
