About the book:

In 1973, economist E.F. Schumacher published Small is Beautiful, in which he laid out his ideas in opposition to neo-classical economics' single-minded focus on output and technology, criticizing it as unsustainable, and advocated for the decentralization of large organizations. The book was to have a great influence on the environmental movement and many other audiences. In this new work, Pearce (literature, Ave Maria U.) revisits Schumacher's arguments, finding them more valid than ever and of value for pointing the way towards having the scale and cultural prerogatives of the family shape the economic and sociopolitical future of our communities.
