Small Is Beautiful: Economics as if People Mattered
Small Is Beautiful is Oxford-trained economist E. F. Schumacher’s classic call for the end of excessive consumption.

Named one of the Times Literary Supplement’s 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.
