From value to values: The turning point came in when he was sent as Economic Development Adviser to the government of Burma. He was supposed to introduce the Western model of economic growth in order to raise the living standards of the Burmese people.
But he discovered that the Burmese needed no economic development along Western lines, as they themselves had an indigenous economic system well suited to their conditions, culture and climate. Schumacher was perhaps the only Western economist to dare to put these two words, Buddhism and economics, together.
The essay was printed and reprinted in numerous journals and anthologies. ITDG became the practical expression of respect for cultural diversity. Complementary to Intermediate Technology was his involvement with sustainable agriculture; he spent much time on his organic garden and became President of The Soil Association.

To Schumacher it was logical and natural to produce, consume and organize as locally as possible, which inevitably meant on a smaller scale. Therefore, to him the question of size was an overriding and overarching principle. Beyond a certain scale the people involved are disempowered and a bureaucratic machine takes over.
For example, in a school of 1, children, parents do not know the teachers, teachers cannot know all the children, the children cannot know each other, and the surrounding community is overwhelmed by the influx of pupils who do not belong to that community. Similarly, large hospitals, large factories and large businesses lose the purpose of enriching human wellbeing and become obsessed with maintaining and perpetuating the organization for its own sake.

Therefore, it could be said almost invariably that if there is something wrong, there is something too big. As in economics, so in politics. So Schumacher believed in small nations, small communities and small organizations. Small, simple and nonviolent were his three philosophical precepts. His legacy continues to be felt.
