Ensuring a Strong Voice for Change
Our members helped build a voice for economic change.
Past membership support of the E. F. Schumacher Society, a small organization founded in 1980, allowed it to develop a solid theoretical and practical base of work, positioning it to offer positive solutions when the need for change became broadly apparent.
That time has come.
The deepening environmental crisis is now recognized as an economic crisis. Widening social discrepancies are seen as a failure of an economic system that thrives on the tension between producer and consumer, between owners and workers, between small and too-big-to-fail. A global financial melt down puts in question the very way money is placed in circulation.
A new, fair, green, resilient, decentralized, sustainable, cooperative economy is necessary.
To meet this challenge the E. F. Schumacher Society has transitioned to become the Schumacher Center for a New Economics with an expanded mission. We are building alliances with other organizations shaping a new economics, convening events, publishing papers, helping to build a movement. We welcome your partnership in this vital task of shaping a new economy.
