Buxton/Hollis/Gorham­ movie night: The Economics of Happiness

  • March 11, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join with Buxton/Hollis/Gorham members and other "westerlings" for another inspiring movie and thoughtful discussion. "The Economics of Happiness describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. On the one hand, an unholy alliance of governments and big business continues to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power. At the same time, people all over the world are resisting those policies, demanding a re-regulation of trade and finance—and, far from the old institutions of power, they’re starting to forge a very different future. Communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm – an economics of localization." Hope to see you there!

6:30 Potluck Supper (bring a dish to share and your own potluck kit - plate, bowl, cup, utensils, napkin)

7:00 Announcements and Movie

8:30-9:30-ish Discussion and Closing

For those with allergies, please be aware there are cats in the house (who will probably hide upstairs for the evening!)

    Hi folks! Just a couple of notes about tomorrow night.
    1. I just realized we may run short on seating. If you see this note and could bring a folding chair or a cushion for the floor, that would be helpful. Might not be needed, but just in case...thanks!
    2. Please drive in on Canal Rd. by the bridge instead of Usher Mill Rd and park down below the house. Our drive is getting pretty muddy!
    Looking forward to seeing you all!
