John Angus MacLean

Progressive Conservative

Mr. MacLean:

I recently made a speech along these lines in a different setting, and one of my friends congratulated me on the profound impression the book entitled "Small is Beautiful" had had on my thinking. The book is by E. F. Schumacher, and I had to confess to him that I not only never read the book but, up to that point, I had scarcely heard of it, and that I had been talking along these lines for 25 years. I suppose it is too much to expect or hope that Mr. Schumacher, the author of the book, had been reading some of my speeches.
