Creating a World without Poverty How Social Business Can Transform Our Lives Full description

Review:

"(I)n Creating A World Without Poverty, Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus argues convincingly that social business is an achievable way of exploiting capitalism to help the poor. Yunus moves the debate beyond the tired argument that the rich should simply donate to those less privileged, and demonstrates that the free market can in fact be used to the advantage of the less well offThis book is a must-read for policymakers or philanthropists, and its conversational style and straightforward logic also make it appealing to the layperson." --Scotland on Sunday

About the Author:

Muhammad Yunus, a native of Bangladesh, was educated at Dhaka University and studied economics at Vanderbilt University, USA. In 1972 he became head of the economics department at Chittagong University. He is the founder and managing director of Grameen Bank, a pioneer of microcredit, an economic movement that has helped lift millions of families around the world out of poverty. Yunus and Grameen Bank are winners of the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize.
