Creating a world without poverty : social business and the future of capitalism by Muhammad Yunus( Book )

29 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,988 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize outlines his vision for a new business model that combines the power of free markets with the quest for a more humane world--and he tells the inspiring stories of companies that are doing this work today. In the last two decades, free markets have swept the globe, bringing with them enormous potential for positive change. But traditional capitalism cannot solve problems like inequality and poverty, because it is hampered by a narrow view of human nature in which people are one-dimensional beings concerned only with profit. In fact, human beings have many other drives and passions, including the spiritual, the social, and the altruistic. Welcome to the world of social 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.--From publisher description
Building social business : the new kind of capitalism that serves humanity's most pressing needs by Muhammad Yunus( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Muhammad Yunus, the practical visionary who pioneered microcredit and won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize, has developed a new dimension for capitalism which he calls "social business." By harnessing the energy of profit-making to the objective of fulfilling human needs, social business creates self-supporting, viable commercial enterprises that generate economic growth even as they produce goods and services that make the world a better place. Here, Yunus shows how social business has gone from being a theory to an inspiring practice, adopted by leading corporations, entrepreneurs, and social activists across Asia, South America, Europe and the US. He demonstrates how social business transforms lives; offers practical guidance for those who want to create social businesses of their own; explains how public and corporate policies must adapt to make room for the social business model; and shows why social business holds the potential to redeem the failed promise of free-market enterprise.--From publisher description
A world of three zeros : the new economics of zero poverty, zero unemployment, and zero net carbon emissions by Muhammad Yunus( Book )

11 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Muhammad Yunus, who created microcredit, invented social business, and earned a Nobel Peace Prize for his work in alleviating poverty, is one of today's most trenchant social critics. Now he declares it's time to admit that the capitalist engine is broken--that in its current form it inevitably leads to rampant inequality, massive unemployment, and environmental destruction. We need a new economic system that unleashes altruism as a creative force just as powerful as self-interest. Is this a pipe dream? Not at all. In the last decade, thousands of people and organizations have already embraced Yunus's vision of a new form of capitalism, launching innovative social businesses designed to serve human needs rather than accumulate wealth. They are bringing solar energy to millions of homes in Bangladesh; turning thousands of unemployed young people into entrepreneurs through equity investments; financing female-owned businesses in cities across the United States; bringing mobility, shelter, and other services to the rural poor in France; and creating a global support network to help young entrepreneurs launch their start-ups. In A World of Three Zeros, Yunus describes the new civilization emerging from the economic experiments his work has helped to inspire. He explains how global companies like McCain, Renault, Essilor, and Danone got involved with this new economic model through their own social action groups, describes the ingenious new financial tools now funding social businesses, and sketches the legal and regulatory changes needed to jumpstart the next wave of socially driven innovations. And he invites young people, business and political leaders, and ordinary citizens to join the movement and help create the better world we all dream of

Muhammad Yunus tiene un sueño: la erradicación total de la pobreza. En 1983, en contra de los consejos de la banca y de su gobierno, el profesor Yunus fundó Grameen, un banco dedicado a suministrar préstamos minúsculos a las personas más pobres de Bangla Desh. Su objetivo no era simplemente ayudar a que los pobres sobrevivieran, sino generar un mecanismo de ignición de la iniciativa y el espíritu emprendedor que les ayudara a salir por sí mismos de la pobreza. Su solución a la pobreza en el mundo, fundada sobre la creencia de que el crédito es un derecho humano fundamental, es de una brillante simplicidad: fomentar una serie de principios financieros sensatos y la gente se ayudará a sí misma. Llevadas a la práctica, las teorías de Yunus funcionan. El índice de reembolso de los préstamos es prácticamente del 100%. Por todo el mundo están surgiendo nuevos programas de microcrédito siguiendo su modelo.--Desde la descripción de la editorial

But he didn't stop there - whenever he sees a problem he starts a business, creating a mix between business and social work, which he's coined "social business."By tackling some of the world's most vexing problems from healthcare, education to alternative energy, he is demonstrating to the world that complex problems sometimes do have simple answers.
