The HAPI film presents a snapshot of our economic history spanning from the dawn of civilization to today. It begins by investigating the failure of a ‘consumption driven Black economy’, systematic poverty, disenfranchisement and the decline of entrepreneurship. It later addresses its complex problems and provides innovative ideas to successfully compete in the global economy.
The underlying theme of the film is the interrelationship between the three essential components of economics, politics and culture. We’ve brought together some of the brightest minds in psychology, history, and business to explore the “BIG PICTURE”— the history of world economic development and our present socio - economic conditions.
Some of cast include: Dr. Leonard Jeffries, Dr. Boyce Watkins, Dr. Julianne Malveaux, Dr. Zahi Hawass, Professor James Smalls, Dr. Watson, Jabari Osaze and more.
Our goal is to spread economic literacy - essentially creating a dialogue that will enable those to become financially astute. Hapi offers economic solutions that are obtainable and easily implemented. Additionally, it’s important to note how politics impacts us economically and then understand how they work in conjunction.
