Film: “WHAT’S THE ECONOMY FOR, ANYWAY?” (40 min, John de Graaf, 2010)
WITH FILMMAKER JOHN DE GRAAF AND LAURA MUSIKANSKI, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF SUSTAINABLE SEATTLE
And a Discussion about the Seattle Area Happiness Initiative
Is the GDP is an adequate measure of society's well-being? Are there workable alternatives? And ...what's happiness got to do with it? In this film, produced and directed by John de Graaf of “AFFLUENZA” fame and “TAKE BACK YOUR TIME” fame and TAKE BACK YOUR TIME, ecological economist Dave Batker presents a humorous, edgy, factual, timely and highly-visual monologue about the American economy today, challenging the ways we measure economic success--especially the Gross Domestic Product--and offering an answer to the question: What's the Economy for, Anyway?
Join us following the film for a community discussion with Filmmaker John de Graaf and Laura Musikanski, Executive Director of Sustainable Seattle, about a meaningful framing of our economy, and a presentation on the recently released Happiness Survey from the Seattle Area Happiness Initiative!
