Book Club 4 | Small is Beautiful

December 07, 2020

In the course of the last generation, mantras of excess have driven our culture of consumption. Bigger is better, greed is good, too much is never enough. In this month’s book club pick, we explore the writings of a German born economist, E. F. Schumacher planting a warning flag against these cultural views, with his book Small is Beautiful: a study of economics as if people mattered.

Enjoy the conversation we had this month with our Senior Researcher Julian Wood.
