A model envisioned in “Small Is Beautiful” is possible in reality

A model envisioned in “Small Is Beautiful” is possible in reality – welcoming to the Polish countryside.

joomplu:2

In the early 1970?s, Fritz Schumacher wrote the book “Small Is Beautiful” and proposed ?an economics as though people mattered? comprising small scale, flexible and ecologically sensitive developments as the long term solution for preserving the planet and the quality of life of its populace. Three decades on, we seem to be no nearer to applying the wisdom inherent in Schumacher?s work.

It is not just the loss of lively hoods and poisoning of the soil that marks this out as the worst crisis to have hit the countryside in centuries, but it is the loss of “a whole way of life” and the great store of knowledge and wisdom that goes with it. Today, a handful of transnational corporations control a high percentage of commercial agricultural activities in Europe and North America ? and a similarly small number of supermarkets dominate the market place.
