August Book Discussion: Small is Beautiful

Please join Practical Anarchy on August 26 for a discussion of E.F. Schumacher’s Small is Beautiful: Economics as if People Mattered. Small is Beautiful is a critique of excessive consumption, growth, rapid urbanization and development, and the “science” of economics, and an argument for economies that work for communities, not corporations. Part of the “subterranean tradition of organic and decentralist economics” from Kropotkin and Ghandi to Paul Goodman and Murry Bookchin, the book is a call that is as urgent now as in 1973 when it was first published.

What: Reading and discussion of Small is Beautiful by E.F. Schumacher
