Book summary

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.
