        This video is a part of 'Happiness and degrowth' that is an interdisciplinary art&science project searching for means of degrowth in everyday life. The thoughts of happiness were collected from Salo market place (happiness testing on rocking chairs). Salo is a town in economical turmoil due to Nokia's layoffs. We try to find out if degrowth could solve some of the problems. The thoughts are from local people and imagery presents existing economically sustainable actions or places of degrowth in Salo like for example bio-organic farms, shops, recycling centre, market place, local travel locations etc. The video has three parts that can be presented as an installation. The other parts are Onni / Happiness (vimeo.com/mkk/happiness) and Kohtuus / Degrowth (vimeo.com/mkk/degrowth). Images of the installation can be found here flickr.com/photos/artsufartsu/sets/72157626788726061/

We will focus on the evolving global capitalist economic crisis and its consequences. We will examine topics such as the social costs effects of the historic long-term US unemployment, national debt crises and “austerity programs” in Greece, Ireland, Spain, and beyond changes in today’s Chinese economy and their global effects, tax reform and the entire tax issue in the US today, continuing crisis in the US housing and credit markets the economics of immigration Actual economic developments will shape the agenda for each monthly Tuesday meeting. Rick Wolff, with occasional guests, will present an economic update and an analysis of some particular economic topics and then open the floor to questions, comments and a general discussion of where the US and world economies are going and the political implications. We aim to develop participants’ understanding of and ability to explain to others the key economic developments of our time.
