Story of Stuff
From the makers of The Story of Stuff (and the stories of cosmetics, bottled water, electronics, and cap and trade, to name a few) comes The Story of Solutions; a look into how we might shift our economy in a more sustainable and just direction by changing the goal we work towards.
Currently, we play the ‘Game of More’ where economic growth is good, even if it’s the result of more missiles and jails and not schools and hospitals. What we should aim for instead, is Better – better health, better jobs and a better environment.
To actually achieve Better we need solutions to our problems that focus on that goal directly, rather than aiming for, or relying on, more economic growth.
These solutions will give people (not corporations) more power, account for all costs and externalities, close the wealth gap, and actually make people happier.
