Transition and The Economics of Happiness

I forgot to tell you that I went to see a movie on Thursday at an event by Transition Uppsala. Transition Uppsala is based on the transition network organization that I wrote about before here. Is your town involved in transition yet? It seems this idea is spreading pretty fast and I was suprised and happy to see that there is a group working on this in Uppsala as well.

Here's a short movie explaining more about trainsition network:

Back to the movie that we saw, it was called "the Economics of Happiness" and it was trying to go into the subject of why our current economic system based on globalization and growth doesn't really make us happy. It was a good movie if you want to get an overview of our current economy based on globalization but if you already know about this subject it might not bring you so many new points.
