Your Call 012208 Can Business End Poverty?

Is a new business model the key to ending poverty? On the next Your Call we welcome Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus, founder of the Grameen Bank to discuss how business will beat poverty. The Grameen Bank made small loans to the very poor and freed millions of people from the bonds of abject poverty. In his new book, Creating a World Without Poverty, Yunus lays out his vision for a global marketplace that values the whole human being, not just profits. How can we harness the dynamism of the free market to end poverty? It's Your Call with Sandip Roy and you.
