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.
