GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT:  E. F. Schumacher was an internationally influential economic thinker, statistician and economist. In 1955, Schumacher traveled to Burma as an economic consultant where he developed the principles of what he called Buddhist economics, based on the belief that good work was essential for proper human development and that production from local resources for regional needs is the most rational way of economic life. He gained insights that led him to become a pioneer in what is now named appropriate technology: earth and user-friendly technology matched to the scale of community life. His book Small Is Beautiful: Economics As If People Mattered from 1973 is among the 100 most influential books published since World War according to The Times Literary Supplement. Small Is Beautiful, economy as if people matter received the prestigious award Prix Européen de l’Essai Charles Veillon in 1976,  translated to many languages, and the book stands as one of the most important green books of all time. Read and vote on my list of the 101 most important green books.

I always try to be positive & have great energy to share. I try hard not to be affected by negative energy from others. I think that life is to short and that I do not have time to be grumpy, its only me that suffers from it and people around me. I believe that the whole universe is inter-connected, always in change and not everlasting. All people needs to develop positive karma, this will help us in the future. We all need to take care of this planet as we are only borrowing for a short time. So let us pass it on in a better condition than when we borrowed it. Remember next time we come around we might be able to borrow it again. I belive strongly that in a time like this we need strong visionary people that view the world as one. Enjoy
