5.0 out of 5 stars Mmm...............Interesting, 3 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Small is Still Beautiful (Hardcover)
Being an economist, I expected that this book would just be a green peace, save the world, pile of trash book. However from the start it made me aware of how narrow minded and ignorant we all are.
The book adresses so many aspects of life rather than just economics and it does it in a way that even if you are not an economist you would fully understand and acknowledge it. It challenges our basic way of life, it asks questions which we could not even dream of, it makes us look at ourselves as human beings and disregards the things we value most, money, power, "democracy".
Everyone today believes in growth and globalisation being good, but if you read this book you may just change your mind. It is a modernised and more relevant reiteration of Schumacher's basic thoughts and it puts the human being in perspective to the REAL world which we are constantly destroying.
