Bigger is always better. Or so the experts say. Michael Shuman's book in the BK Currents series explodes the myths behind economies of scale, showing how local businesses out-perform their competition in profitability and in value to consumers, workers and communities.Critiques of big-box stores are hot. Shuman's book shows readers what globalization means on the ground, in their local communities, through case studies and inspiring LOIS (locally owned and import-substituting) versusTINA (there is no alternative) stories. Readers will be surprised to learn that changing their own consumption and investment habits is easier-and smarter-than they think.
