Creating a World Without Poverty
What if you could harness the power of the free market to solve the problems of poverty, hunger, and inequality? As founder of Grameen Bank, Nobel Peace Prize - winner Muhammad Yunus pioneered microedit, the innovative banking program that provides poor people - mainly women - with small loans they use to launch businesses and lift their families out of poverty. In Creating a World Without Poverty, Yunus goes beyond microedit to pioneer the idea of social business - a completely new way to use the creative vibrancy of business to tackle social problem from poverty and pollution to inadequate health care and lack of education. Yunus's 'Next Big Idea' offers a pioneering model for nothing less than a new, more humane form of capitalism.
