Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Small Is Beautiful by E. F. Schumacher.

How does our economic system impact the way we live? Does it really affect what we truly care about? 

Oxford economist E. F. Schumacher provides an enlightening study of our economic system and its purpose, challenging the current state of excessive consumption in our society. Offering a crucial message for the modern world struggling to balance economic growth with the human costs of globalisation, Small Is Beautiful puts forward the revolutionary yet viable case for building our economies around the needs of communities, not corporations.

Economic Enlightenment

a must read for anyone who is able to vote in an election. we can solve the world problems but we've got to make the idea of a tiny cadre of billionaires in charge, utterly disgusting. this book tells you how.

From another age.

The basic premise is dealt with slowly in the opening chapters. The rest of the book seems to be a rambling appendix of references and quotes proving the author reads and thinks a lot. Meandering toward a point often made with a a single comment, and repeatedly qualified with quotes and counterargument, seemingly for the sale of it.
