A New Economy is a feature documentary about seven organizations that are laying the foundation for a new economy based on collaboration and community. Watch as these organizations move beyond profit-making, towards a more cooperative future by experimenting with open and non-traditional business models. By rewarding human
effort fairly and proportionately instead of obsessing about the bottom line, these
revolutionary businesses are creating a more people-friendly culture, creating new
ways to make money and make it sustainably.
The film features seven interwoven stories including London Brewing Coop
from London, ON; Sensorica from Montreal, QC; Sole Food Street Farms from
Vancouver, BC; Thorncliffe Park Women’s Committee; The Red Victorian;
and the Borealis String Quartet from Vancouver.
Run time: 85 minutes; Closed Captioned
