DR. E. F. SCHUMACHER is the Director of Statistics of the National Coal Board. He also acts as the main inspiration behind the Intermediate Technology Development Group. He was educated at the universities of Bonn, Berlin, Oxford and Columbia, and has worked in business, farming and journalism. Since 1946 he has been Economic Adviser to the British Control Commission in Germany, the Government of Burma, and the Indian Planning Commission.
