Book Value with Adam Lent
Our belief in ‘big’ has been manufactured over the centuries by powerful politicians, intellectuals and business leaders who have gripped society’s collective imagination and refused to let go. Consider instead a world where power is exercised by millions instead of elites. In SMALL IS POWERFUL Adam Lent explores politics, economics and culture – three areas where big power has taken hold – and asks us to imagine a world where citizens get to tell governments what to do, where businesses are owned by their employees and customers, and where everyone is free to choose how to live.
