Schumacher a exprimé pour le XXe siècle un principe que l’Église a élevé au rang de noyau central de sa doctrine sociale : le principe de subsidiarité.
Sous le titre Small is toujours beautiful, le livre de Joseph Pearce vient de paraître en langue française.
Almost thirty years after his death, Schumacher’s still, small voice speaks with greater urgency than ever to a world in need of his wisdom.
Although Pearce, who is a Catholic, has not written an explicitly Catholic book, Small Is Still Beautiful contains numerous favorable references.

Few realized when “Small is Beautiful” was published that E.F. Schumacher’s economic theories were underpinned by solid religious foundations.
