Film Screening in Rossland: A New Economy

From the documentary film "A New Economy"

 A recent documentary film, " A New Economy," explores what might happen if working together for the common good were to become the most common business model.

Can the world be saved?  Can co-operation save us? Or can global capitalism, with its dependence on the infinite exponential economic growth demanded by return on investment, continue unabated without exhausting the resources that support our economy and ending our civilization? The answer to the latter question is arguably "no."  The answer to the first question -- can co-operation save us -- may well be yes, if we can achieve a paradigm shift in values, this film suggests.
