Intermediate technology[edit]

Excerpt from Small is Beautiful: Economics as if People Mattered E.F. Schumacher, 1973 Definition of Intermediate Technology If we define the level of technology in terms of “equipment cost per workplace”, we can call the indigenous technology of a typical developing country—symbolically speaking— a $1- technology, while that of the developed countries could be called a $1,000- technology. The gap between these technologies is so enormous that a transition from one to the other is simply impossible. In fact current attempt of the developing countries to infiltrate the $1,000-technology into their economies inevitably kills off the $1- technology at an alarming rate, destroying the traditional workplaces much faster than modern workplaces can be created, and thus leaves the poor in a more desperate and helpless position than ever before. If effective help is to be brought to those who need it most, a technology is required which would range in some intermediate position between the $1-technology and the $1,000-technology. Let us call it— again symbolically speaking—a $100-technology.

Such an intermediate technology would be immensely more productive than the indigenous technology (which is often in a condition of decay), but it would also be immensely cheaper that the sophisticated, highly capital-intensive technology of modern industry. At such a level of capitalization, very large numbers of workplaces could be created within a fairly short time; and the creation of such workplaces would be “within reach” for the more enterprising minority within the district, not only in financial terms but also in terms of their education, aptitude, organizing skill, and so forth.
