Small is Beautiful

Excellent article by Simon Jenkins in today's Sunday Times.

If there was ever an argument for keeping hospitals local and small, this is it.

He also quotes liberally from E.F. Schumacher's "Small is Beautiful" (or economics as if people mattered), one of the books that made me go into entrepreneurship research.

If I am elected, I shall try and make this de rigeur reading for all civil servants within the Assembly.

Thanks for reminding me about that book it had a major influence on me too
Simon Jenkins article was just so good
Look at what’s happened to the WDA since they were sucked into the Assembly -now there’s a clogged artery if there was one
