Small Is Beautiful and Can Be Global

When I was in my twenties, I remember reading Small Is Beautiful (excellent book) and every time I think about that title now, I want to change it to:  Small Is Global.

In "Never Too Small to Go Global," Bernard Paprocki makes a case that you are, well, never too small to go global.  Read his article here.

(March 23, 2009):
Remember when E.F. Schumacher wrote the classic Small is Beautiful? I think about that all the time now with small businesses going global. One of Schumacher's philosophies was: "Why use the computer if you can make the calculation on the back of an envelope."

If he were to revise his book today, he might offer this: "Why remain local with a business if you can easily go global?"
