Dr Yunus quote
Monday: Dr. Muhammad Yunus, Grameen Bank

@GrameenBank founder, Professor @Muhammad Yunus first started by talking with people in the streets and villages of his homeland, Bangladesh where he learned that the root cause of their poverty was the outrageous interest rates they were forced to pay in their desperate attempts to create their own little businesses.

"Society has always told the poor they should not be seen nor heard," says Yunus. "Grameen invites them to come together, hold their heads up high."

Book: A World of Three Zeros
Saturday: Dr. Muhammad Yunus’ Book, A World of Three Zeros

Professor 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 we need a new economic system that unleashes altruism as a creative force just as powerful as self-interest.
