Update & Schumacher on the Web

My apologies for the hiatus folks. Lately my time has been consumed by thesis revisions. However, I promise to return with my reflection on chapter seven next week, perhaps also finally taking some time to respond to some of the previous posts.

That being said, I recently came across another interesting Schumacher reference on the web, this time from the Adbusters media foundation. Their website describes themselves as follows:
We are a global network of artists, activists, writers, pranksters, students, educators and entrepreneurs who want to advance the new social activist movement of the information age. Our aim is to topple existing power structures and forge a major shift in the way we will live in the 21st century.
If you're looking for the Schumacher reference, you can find it on their True Cost Economics campaign page:

At the top of a list of "new economists leading the charge" is none other than E. F. Schumacher, along with a lengthy synopsis of his work. The list and site in general are quite interesting if you're looking for introductions to perspectives on economics other than the neoclassical one that still so heavily permeates the business and government sectors of our society today. 19 important economists from the past 50 or so years are introduced in the list itself, as well as the important questions they've raised and the ideas they've developed within the field. There are also interesting essays on the "old" traditional economic paradigm and the "new" economic paradigm which they believe is needed in our world today (see their main page).
