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

59 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in 9 languages and held by 2,400 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 )

22 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,432 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

El banquero de los pobres : los microcréditos y la batalla contra la pobreza en el mundo by Muhammad Yunus( Book )

28 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Banker to the poor : micro-lending and the battle against world poverty by Muhammad Yunus( Book )

30 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Muhammad Yunus is that rare thing: a bona fide visionary. His dream is the total eradication of poverty from the world. In 1983, against the advice of banking and government officials, Yunus established Grameen, a bank devoted to providing the poorest of Bangladesh with minuscule loans. Grameen Bank, based on the belief that credit is a basic human right, not the privilege of a fortunate few, now provides over 2.5 billion dollars of micro-loans to more than two million families in rural Bangladesh. Ninety-four percent of Yunus's clients are women, and repayment rates are near 100 percent. Around the world, micro-lending programs inspired by Grameen are blossoming, with more than three hundred programs established in the United States alone. Banker to the Poor is Muhammad Yunus's memoir of how he decided to change his life in order to help the world's poor. In it he traces the intellectual and spiritual journey that led him to fundamentally rethink the economic relationship between rich and poor, and the challenges he and his colleagues faced in founding Grameen. He also provides wise, hopeful guidance for anyone who would like to join him in "putting homelessness and destitution in a museum so that one day our children will visit it and ask how we could have allowed such a terrible thing to go on for so long." The definitive history of micro-credit direct from the man that conceived of it, Banker to the Poor is necessary and inspirational reading for anyone interested in economics, public policy, philanthropy, social history, and business. Muhammad Yunus was born in Bangladesh and earned his Ph.D. in economics in the United States at Vanderbilt University, where he was deeply influenced by the civil rights movement. He still lives in Bangladesh, and travels widely around the world on behalf of Grameen Bank and the concept of micro-credit."--Publisher's website

Un mondo senza povertà by Muhammad Yunus( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in Italian and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Con "Il banchiere dei poveri" ha raccontato la storia straordinaria della fondazione della Grameen Bank e ha mostrato come il sistema del microcredito sia capace di sottrarre milioni di persone alla miseria e allo sfruttamento. Da allora ha esteso il raggio d'azione di Grameen dal campo strettamente finanziario a quelli dell'alimentazione, dell'educazione, dell'assistenza sanitaria, delle telecomunicazioni. Oggi il premio Nobel per la pace Muhammad Yunus è pronto per una nuova sfida: proporre quell'esperienza come un modello e un punto di riferimento per riuscire finalmente a estirpare la piaga della povertà mondiale. La sfida si può vincere, secondo Yunus, con lo sviluppo e la diffusione del "business sociale": un nuovo tipo di attività economica che ha di mira la realizzazione di obiettivi sociali anziché la massimizzazione del profitto. Una forma di iniziativa economica capace di attivare le dinamiche migliori del libero mercato, conciliandole però con l'aspirazione a un mondo più umano, più giusto, più pulito. Sembra un sogno a occhi aperti. Ma è un sogno che ha aiutato il Bangladesh quasi a dimezzare il suo tasso di povertà in poco più di trent'anni. E che comincia a coinvolgere multinazionali, fondazioni, banche, singoli imprenditori, organizzazioni no profit in ogni parte del mondo

5 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in German and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein Mann hat eine Vision und setzt sie in die Tat um - gegen den Widerstand internationaler Entwicklungshilfe-Organisationen und mächtiger Banken. Muhammad Yunus, Wirtschaftsprofessor aus Bangladesch, einem der ärmsten Länder der Erde, hatte vor dreißig Jahren die revolutionäre Idee, Kleinstkredite - oft nicht mehr als 25 Dollar - an die Ärmsten der Armen zu vergeben und ihnen damit zu helfen, ihren Lebensunterhalt zu sichern. Die Kreditnehmer - vorwiegend Frauen - hatten nur eine Sicherheit zu bieten: ihre Ehre. Was für Banker ein Ding der Unmöglichkeit war, funktionierte: Alle vergebenen Kredite wurden in vollem Umfang zurückgezahlt. Heute ist die von Yunus gegründete Grameen-Bank weltberühmt. Sein Konzept wurde in mehr als hundert Staaten übernommen und hat bereits mehr als 6,6 Millionen Menschen in Entwicklungsländern oder Krisengebieten geholfen. Die packende Autobiographie von Muhammad Yunus, dem "Bankier der Armen", der 2006 für sein Lebenswerk mit dem Friedensnobelpreis ausgezeichnet wurde, beweist, dass es eine erfolgreiche Strategie gegen Hunger und Armut in der Welt gibt

Banker to the poor : the autobiography of Muhammad Yunus, founder of the Grameen Bank by Muhammad Yunus( Book )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Banker to the Poor is an autobiographical account of the founder of the Grameen Bank, Muhammad Yunus. This work is fundamental rethink on the economic relationship between the rich and the poor, their rights and obligations." "The Grameen Bank is founded on principles of trust and solidarity. Muhammad Yunus believes that the right to credit should be recognized as a fundamental human right because credit is the last hope left to those faced with absolute poverty. The unique and extraordinary methods he used to combat human despair is recounted here with humility and conviction. Yunus is familiar with both Eastern and Western cultures - on the failures and potential for good of industrial countries." "This book is an appeal for action: we must concentrate on promoting the will to survive and the courage to build in the first and most essential element of the economic cycle - Man." (jacquette)
