Did EF Schumacher’s landmark book Small is Beautiful inspire David Cameron’s big idea?

    • What a fascinating documentary. Jonathan Porritt is an excellent presenter and I think I fell in love with Schumacher hearing him speak with such charm, humour, humility and of course genius. I wish my lecturers at uni could have ‘touched the hem of his garment’. And of course great hearing him speak about your organisation as well reaffirms why I love to support the work you do. Thank you one and all! And just to add hearing Beckerman speak is it any wonder conventional/traditional economists have such a bad reputation. I think the world would be a better place if more people followed EF’s school of thought.
