The collection of lectures and publications from the Schumacher Center for a New Economics represents some of the foremost voices on a new economics. 

To hear John Todd is to be struck by his dedication, modesty, integrity, and humanity. A biologist and Earth steward, he is in the forefront of the new field called ecological design, which applies the intelligence of nature to human needs. By decoding this intelligence it can be used technologically in order to reduce the destructive impact of humankind on the planet. Todd tells about the work being done to create living technologies in the areas of food production, generation of fuels, conversions of wastes,  repairing of environments, and in his own case restoring of degraded and polluted waters. He describes his current involvement in an eco-industrial park in Burlington, Vermont, which will consist of small enterprises, such as a brewery and a fish farm, that share their resources so the waste or excess of one will be an in-put component of the other.
