Small is Beautiful

There is a good book that I would like to recommend. It is a book called Small is Beautiful by E.F Shumacher. More on him here
I have been reading this book and it gives a concrete solution to the problems of the day. The main thesis is that small is a better solution than big. That small technical empowerment, small economic solutions are better placed to solve the issues facing the world than massive soultions.
It is a good point but It is also true that small developments should happen in a larger canvas of better infrastructure .
I will add some of the quotations from this book later. But for Now I would suggest that you catch the book.
It has a lot of impact on the small world of our pocket book and also on the larger country and world. Small incremental improvements rightly targetted at key individuals will go a long way
