Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the last two decades, free markets have swept the globe. But traditional capitalism has been unable to solve problems like inequality and poverty. In Muhammad Yunus groundbreaking sequel to Banker to the Poor, he outlines the concept of social business—business where the creative vision of the entrepreneur is applied to todays most serious problems: feeding the poor, housing the homeless, healing the sick, and protecting the planet. Creating a World Without Poverty reveals the next phase in a hopeful economic and social revolution that is already underway.

Synopsis:

In this newly updated national bestseller, Nobel Peace Prize–winner Muhammad Yunus outlines his vision of a new business model that combines the power of free markets with the quest for a more humane world.

Muhammad Yunus, a native of Bangladesh, 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 were the recipients of the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize.
