E. F. Schumacher 



Schumacher was born in Germany in 1911 and died in 1977. He was an economist and worked for Britain's National Coal board for twenty years from 1950. He is famous for his book "Small is beautiful" which came to signify the entire 1970s/1980s revolt against large, impersonal organizations. He also produced a collection of essays in a book subtitled: "A Study of Economics As If People Mattered." Along with other ideas, this featured the concept of rethinking the conduct of business, economics and government on a small, human scale. Schumacher also set up the International Technology Development Group and was an adviser on economic problems to Third world Countries. Charles Handy was enormously influenced by him.
