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

32 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 2,245 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 )

21 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,425 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

Un mondo senza povertà by Muhammad Yunus( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in Italian and held by 45 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

Coined : the rich life of money and how its history has shaped us by Kabir Sehgal( Recording )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The importance of money in our lives is readily apparent to everyone--rich, poor, and in between. However grudgingly, most of us accept the expression "Money makes the world go round" as a universal truth. We are all aware of the power or money--how it influences our moods, compels us to take risks, and serves as the yardstick of success in societies around the world. Yet because we take the daily reality of money so completely for granted, we seldom question how and why it has come to play such a central role in our lives. In Coined, author Kabir Sehgal casts aside our workaday assumptions about money and takes the listener on a global quest to uncover a deeper understanding of the relationship between money and humankind. More than a mere history of its subject, this riveting audio probes the conceptual origins and evolution of money by examining it through the multiple lenses of disciplines as varied as biology, psychology, anthropology, and theory. Coined is not only a profoundly informative discussion of the concept of money, but it is also an endlessly fascinating and entertaining take on the anture of humanity and the inner workings of the mind."--Container

Für eine Welt ohne Armut : die Autobiographie des Friedensnobelpreisträgers by Muhammad Yunus( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in German and held by 42 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
