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.
