To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Há 50 anos, poucos entenderam este livro. Hoje, muitos reciclam seus argumentos. Vale a pena relê-lo com olhos atentos sob tudo que aconteceu desde então. O planeta viverá sem a gente. Nós é que precisamos reaprender como viver e conviver.
This amazing book was first published in 1973, and I am so very sorry it took me 40 years to get to it!! Written by an economist, it outlinnes the folly of using up our non-renewable resources ("capital" in economist terms). Schumacher declares that no well-run enterprise uses its capital. He goes on to say that greed and envy are the driving forces in Western civilization and that we are doing no one any favours by bringing Western "progress" to other cultures. Fabulous read for those who are interested in alternate ways to make a living.
This book should be mandatory reading and an exam at the end for anyone wanting to run for politician to show that they understood what they read. All graduating students should be obliged to read and understand what E.F. Schumacher is writing about. A very timely book and the only way to go for the future of this planet.
