9780060916305: Small Is Beautiful: Economics as if People Mattered

“Nothing less than a full-scale assault on conventional economic wisdom.” —Newsweek

 

One the 100 most influential books published since World War II

The Times Literary Supplement

 

Hailed as an “eco-bible” by Time magazine, E.F. Schumacher’s riveting, richly researched statement on sustainability has become more relevant and vital with each year since its initial groundbreaking publication during the 1973 energy crisis. A landmark statement against “bigger is better” industrialism, Schumacher’s Small Is Beautiful paved the way for twenty-first century books on environmentalism and economics, like Jeffrey Sachs’s The End of Poverty, Paul Hawken’s Natural Capitalism, Mohammad Yunis’s Banker to the Poor, and Bill McKibben’s Deep Economy. This timely reissue offers a crucial message for the modern world struggling to balance economic growth with the human costs of globalization.

From the Back Cover:

The classic of common-sense economics. "Enormously broad in scope, pithily weaving together threads from Galbraith and Gandhi, capitalism and Buddhism, science and psychology."-- The New Republic

About the Author:

E. F. Schumacher (1911–1977) was a German Rhodes Scholar in economics and, with the help of John Maynard Keynes, later taught at Oxford University. He was also the president of the Soil Association, chief economist for Britain’s National Coal Board, and founder of the Intermediate Technology Development Group. His best-known books are Small Is Beautiful and A Guide for the Perplexed.
