Three Decades After Schumacher Is Small Beautiful?

Abstract:
Three decades after E. F. "Fritz" Schumacher sparked a revolution with his book "Small Is Beautiful," calling for smaller scale technology to end poverty, scientists are asking whether science has become too small for society's own good. The development of molecular level nanotechnology has replaced the giant development projects of the 1960s but poses the question of whether small is still beautiful, a conference in London grouping opponents and proponents of the new technology heard on Wednesday.
