Muhammad Yunus, founder of Grameen Bank, is the creative visionary behind microcredit, a project that gives poor people — mainly women — small loans to enable them to create their own businesses. In the past 30 years, this innovative program has transformed the lives of more than 100 million families.
In this energized book, Yunus has gathered with other ethically ambitious business leaders to explore and experiment with social businesses such as Dannon, which has decided to produce an affordable, nutritious yogurt for hungry children in Bangladesh. Yunus is firmly convinced that capitalism as it is practiced drastically needs revisioning and strengthening the freedom of the market with a whole new stock market.
If you want to see global poverty museums erected in more and more nations around the world, this is the ideal book for you.
