Creating a World without Poverty : Social Business and the Future of Capitalism Paperback
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 today's 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.

Very inspiring book. It helps us maintain a perspective about what's really important. This is a must read book for sure.
Review by johnclaydon
Some good general discussions of ending poverty. But I think his new business model does not workHe devised it as a way of avoiding some of the negatives of capitalism and endless growth. But it does not cover the risk of loss in the startup phase. Only big corporations can use the model. It furthers concentration and uncontrolled growth. It will tend to become a scam by which the powerful greenwash their power.
