In this episode of Being Human, we're doing a little experiment with my friend and regular guest Tom van der Lubbe. Tom is a fellow traveller seeking to humanise the workplace. He's also a historian with a huge brain.
He is Dutch, but let's not hold that against him. Tom and I review one of the most influential books of 70's, Small Is Beautiful, written by the economist E F Schumacher.
Schumacher's central thesis is that the way we approach economics improves our living standards whilst degrading our culture.
In this episode, we explore several aspects of Schumacher's thinking:
- Buddhist economics
- Education as our greatest asset
- Economic reductionism
- Man and machine
- The role of the State
Do let me know what you think of this format.
To your humanity,
