Small Is Beautiful (Bees and Bugs)

Small is beautiful, you hardly notice them though, because they constant work.

They never stop working.

Many do so just to survive…


Small Is Beautiful: A Study of Economics As If People Mattered is a collection of essays by British economist E. F. Schumacher, 1973.

He faults conventional economic thinking for failing to consider the most appropriate scale for an activity, blasts notions that “growth is good”, and that “bigger is better”, and questions the appropriateness of using mass production in developing countries, promoting instead “production by the masses”. Schumacher was one of the first economists to question the appropriateness of using gross national product to measure human well-being, emphasizing that “the aim ought to be to obtain the maximum amount of well being with the minimum amount of consumption”.  — Wikipedia

I think this one fits the WPC’s Earth theme.

  1. (Absolutely love your pics, they are stunning!)

    “Small is beautiful”, and “less is more” are good concepts as far as adult-minded people are concerned , but since kids , (or immature- minded persons )prefer what ‘s showy and huge , we should think of the receiver , before sending the message……….

  2. Delightful photos. 🙂
    We have a large unskilled labour force, so use it for roadworks etc, instead of a machine that would take all their jobs. It seems strange to outsiders, but works for us. 🙂


  3. Lovely close-ups, Amy! My favorite among these great shots is the bee landing on the white poppy…one can see his little left wing working like a propeller on a plane 🙂
