About this title

Synopsis:

E.F. Schumacher argued that our current pursuit of profit and progress which promotes giant organizations has resulted in gross economic inefficiency, environmental pollution and inhumane working conditions. He proposed a system of intermediate technology, based on smaller working units and regional workplaces, utilizing local resources. This follow-up book by his daughter takes up the themes of economic and political "smallness" for the new millennium. It offers an alternative to global consumerism.
