Revue de presse

"A book of heart and hope and downright common sense about the future." (Peter Lewis Daily Mail)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Small is Beautiful is E. F. Schumacher's stimulating and controversial study of economics and its purpose. This remarkable book examines our modern economic system - its use of resources and impact on how we live - questioning whether they reflect what we truly care about. The revolutionary ideas are as pertinent, inspirational and thought-provoking today as when they were first published in 1973.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A rééditer d'urgence 30 décembre 2012
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Ce livre a été un best seller dans les pays anglo-saxons et il a marqué le début d'une critique radicale de l'économie politique moderne. Dans une perspective humaniste, c'est-à-dire tenant l'homme pour le facteur essentiel, et non pour une simple variable d'ajustement. Paru en 1973, il a été constamment réédité en anglais depuis, mais il n'a fait l'objet que d'une seule édition française... en 1978. Bien sûr les éléments chiffrés et les prévisions statistiques auraient besoin d'être remises dans le contexte et réévalués aujourd'hui, mais l'essentiel du point de vue reste valable et même novateur. C'est une pensée visionnaire qu'il faudrait d'urgence remettre en circulation.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A PROPOSAL FOR TURNING ECONOMICS AWAY FROM MASS PRODUCTION 6 mars 2012
Par Steven H Propp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Ernst Friedrich "Fritz" Schumacher (1911-1977) was an English economist best known for his proposals for decentralized and appropriate technologies. This 1973 book was judged by The Times Literary Supplement as among the 100 most influential books published since World War II. Schumacher also wrote A Guide for the Perplexed.

He begins by saying that it is an "absurd and suicidal error to believe... that the problem of production has been solved." (Pg. 15) Our current methods of production "are already eating into the very substance of industrial man... The substance of man cannot measured by the Gross National Product." (Pg. 20)

He asks the question, What is wisdom? He asserts that "it can be FOUND only inside oneself. To be able to find it, one has first to liberate oneself from such masters as greed and envy," which will produce "insights of wisdom which are obtainable in no other way." (Pg. 38) He criticizes economists for whom the idea that there could be unhealthy, disruptive or destructive growth is "a perverse idea which must not be allowed to surface." (Pg. 48)

He argues that it is man, not nature, who provides the primary resource, and that "the key factor of all economic development comes out of the mind of man." In fact, education is the "most vital of all resources." (Pg. 79) He proposes a change in the DIRECTION of research: "towards nonviolence rather than violence; towards an harmonious cooperation with nature rather than a warfare against nature"; toward the low-energy solutions rather than "brutal, wasteful, and clumsy solutions of our present-day sciences." (Pg. 142-143)

He strongly criticizes nuclear energy, since it requires the accumulation of highly toxic substances which nobody knows how to make "safe"; "The idea that a civilization could sustain itself on the basis of such a transgression is an ethical, spiritual, and metaphysical monstrosity. It means conducting the economic affairs of man as if people really did not matter at all." (Pg. 145)

He proposes replacing the "inherently violent, ecologically damaging, self-defeating" technology of mass production with "intermediate technology," which is more conducive to decentralization, compatible with ecology, "gentle" in its use of scarce resources, etc. (Pg. 154) Such a movement would lead back to the real needs of man: "Man is small, and, therefore, small is beautiful." (Pg. 159)

Although some may view this book as exclusively a product of its time (e.g., Governor Jerry Brown's first term), I would suggest that it may still have something to offer we technologically sophisticated moderns.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "Small is Beautiful, " a credo for action 23 septembre 2014
Par D. B. Hopkins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Schumacher's book is if anything, more relevant today than it was 40 years ago! The world suffers from "biggness." More explicitly the focus in economics and life upon greed and envy to produce and consume more, and more, and more. As Schumacher points out in much more lurid detail, this leads to a moral emptiness where we focus upon the "things" we have, rather than the "life" we have. The inequality that results is not only unfair, but unsustainable. He suggests a "smaller" focus that aims for the full employment of men and women on the endeavors that give meaning to life. Buddhist economics would value human spirit above human possessions. All of this is achievable through promoting "Think global; act local." More true today than ever. There are parts of the book that have past there due date, or were never as relevant, but readers won't have any trouble finding the essential meaning. "Small is Beautiful," a credo for action!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Classic For Our Times 20 novembre 2011
Par dfenner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I am astounded to find that the only review of this classic work, which has inspired countless numbers of people from all around the world, should only be given 3 stars by its only reviewer, apparently because they found it hard to read. Earth to reviewer: Profound books are hard to read!

In any case, the criticism is unwarranted.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Economics and Environment Book 10 septembre 2014
Par Kristi Komar - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book was published in 1973. The author, E.F. Schumacher , was ahead of his time as an environmentalist. The book is a collection of essays divided into four parts. It is not a typical econonics book filled with numbers, charts, graphs, and formulas. "Bigness is the nemesis of anarchism, whether the bigness is that of public or privat bureaucracies, because from bigness comes impersonality , insensitivity, and a lust to concentrate abstract power. Hence, Schumacher's title ' Small is Beautiful.'" He weaves together threads from Galbraith and Gandhi, capitalism and Buddhism, science and psychology.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 I highly recommend this book to anyone who is a consumer 24 février 2015

Format:Broché
This book has been around for a long time. Re-reading it now has been enlightening. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is a consumer, in other words - everyone.
