Remarkable videos and a remarkable book about remarkable economics
This is, for me, the most inspiring TED Talk I've ever seen.
Silver Donald Cameron – Bhutan: The Pursuit of Gross National Happiness
And here are a film and a book that expand and deepen the view that economics can and should be about generating good lives in a good society in a good world – in ways that speak to the cultures, realities and daily lives that most of us live in.
The film is the upcoming movie “Money and Life” – see especially the “extended trailer”, clip #2 at the bottom of the page
The book is Sacred Economics: Money, Gift, and Society in the Age of Transition by Charles Eisenstein, for me the most significant book I've read in a decade, about which I'll have more to say later but you can read a preview article here.
Finally, I offer a good closing poem.
