Happiness can stem from many things. For example, we revel in listening to Kai Ryssdal deliver nightly business news on American Public Media's Marketplace. That voice! Perhaps, if we stopped swooning and listened closer, we'd realize that global economics is far less sexy than the silver fox talking about it.
The documentary The Economics of Happiness explores that cross-section of happiness and big business, with a focus on how the global market changes people's lives, cultures, and identities.
Weather permitting, No Festival Requires will screen the documentary outside of Modified Arts, 407 East Roosevelt Street, Thursday, February 28, at 7 p.m. If weather's bad, the screening will move inside. Bring your own seating.
