Abstract The paper discusses the need to re-examine the notion of thinking global but acting local in the context of sustainable development. The first part of the paper describes the evolutionary process for creating sustainable development. It describes how aggregation and representation have become fundamental in discussions on sustainable development. The second part of the paper evaluates the "think global but act local" theme using mico-macro economic evaluations rather than size. The third part of the paper examines some of the implications of the findings of these evaluations for the emerging economies of Southeastern Europe. The paper concludes by suggesting that it is much better to simultaneously think and act globally, as well as locally, rather than adopt a tink big but act small strategy.
