Muhammad Yunus, Ph.D., Winner, 2006 Nobel Peace Prize; Founder, Grameen Bank; Author, «A World of Three Zeros: The New Economics of Zero Poverty, Zero Unemployment, and Zero Net Carbon Emissions»
As the world’s wealth shifts into the hands of the few, a new system is emerging to address the inequality, unemployment and environmental destruction that Muhammad Yunus says goes hand in hand with capitalism. Yunus, the pioneer of microcredit, has seen how the transformative results of his economic experiments help people escape poverty. He believes that today’s economic system is broken and must be reformed to provide opportunity for all.
Yunus is a Bangladeshi economist who earned a Nobel Prize for his work in alleviating poverty. In his new book, A World of Three Zeros, Yunus discusses the experiments that have inspired thousands of individuals, companies and organizations to continue to provide microcredit to all.
