Abstract: 

The Story of Solutions is a 9 minute video that explores how we can move our economy in a more sustainable and just direction, starting with orienting ourselves toward a new goal. In the current 'Game of More', we're told to cheer a growing economy - more roads, more malls, more Stuff! - even though our health indicators are worsening, income inequality is growing and polar icecaps are melting. But what if we changed the point of the game? What if the goal of our economy wasn't more, but better - better health, better jobs and a better chance to survive on the planet? Shouldn't that be what winning means?

The Story of Solutions was written by Annie Leonard and Jonah Sachs, directed by Louis Fox and produced by Free Range Studios.
