    DescriptionSmall Is Beautiful is Oxford-trained economist E. F. Schumacher's 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 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.

    Review quote
    "Embracing what Schumacher stood for--above all the idea of sensible scale--is the task for our time. "Small is Beautiful" could not be more relevant. It was first published in 1973, but it was written for our time."--Bill McKibben, from the Foreword
