Small Is Beautiful: Economics as If People Mattered Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“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. Schumachers 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, Schumachers Small Is Beautiful paved the way for twenty-first century books on environmentalism and economics, like Jeffrey Sachss The End of Poverty, Paul Hawkens Natural Capitalism, Mohammad Yuniss Banker to the Poor, and Bill McKibbens Deep Economy. This timely reissue offers a crucial message for the modern world struggling to balance economic growth with the human costs of globalization.

Synopsis:

As relevant as when it was first published, Small Is Beautiful is an eloquent exploration of economic programs that take the average person into consideration.

Synopsis:

Small Is Beautiful is Oxford-trained economist E. F. Schumachers classic call for the end of excessive consumption. Schumacher inspired such movements as “Buy Locally” and “Fair Trade,” while voicing strong opposition to “casino capitalism” and wasteful corporate behemoths. Named one of the Times Literary Supplements 100 Most Influential Books Since World War II, Small Is Beautiful presents eminently logical arguments for building our economies around the needs of communities, not corporations.

Synopsis:

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
