For more than three decades, he has researched and written about the personal and collective dimensions of the human journey, including the topic of "voluntary simplicity", also known as Simple living.

Schumacher argued against the notion that "bigger is better" in Small Is Beautiful (1973); and Elgin carried on the promotion of the simple life in Voluntary simplicity (1981).
