Like Lessons from Ladakh, The Economics of Happiness was produced by the International Society for Ecology and Culture. It has won "Best in Show" at the Cinema Verde Film and Arts Festival, and an "Award of Merit" from the Accolade Film Festival. It looks at the growing evidence that globalization is destroying human health and happiness as well as destroying life on earth; the film advocates the alternative path of relocalization.
