Small Is Beautiful: Impressions of Fritz Schumacher


Autre option

This film is a short documentary portrait of economist, technologist and lecturer Fritz Schumacher. Up to age 45, Schumacher was dedicated to economic growth. Then he came to believe that the modern technological explosion had grown out of all proportion to human need. Author of Small Is Beautiful - A Study of Economics as if People Mattered and founder of the London-based Intermediate Technology Development Group, he championed the cause of "appropriate" technology. The film introduces us to this gentle revolutionary a few months before his death.

    Everything about this sweet little doco is fragrant with the scent of small. But watching this now in 2021 for the first time I am sad to say that all the parameters have changed and what we consider small now is too large for Fritz's concept. Are we doomed?
