This one hour documentary by Helena Norberg-Hodge, Steven Gorelick & John Page describes a world moving in two directions. On the one hand government and big business promote globalisation and the consolidation of corporate power. At the same time, around the world people in communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies – an economics of localisation.
