Remarkable videos and a remarkable book about remarkable economics

This is, for me, the most inspiring TED Talk I’ve ever seen, by Silver Donald Cameron on 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” 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 at

Finally, I offer this as a good closing poem for this blog post:
