Muhammad Yunus - 2006 Nobel Peace Prize Lecture

U.S. President Barack Obama recently received the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. Listen to this great speech from the 2006 winner of the Nobel Peace Prize Muhammad Yunus. Yunus is a Bangladeshi banker and economist who established the Grameen Bank which conducted "mircoloans" to people living in poverty who were too poor to receive a regular bank loan. These mircoloans helped many people work themselves out of poverty including women. Yunus discusses this success and also talks about the idea of social capitalism which goes beyond the traditional role of capitalism's focus on maximizing profit. This lecture is available on streaming video from NobelPrize.org.

Creating a World Without Poverty: How Social Business Can Transform Our Lives

While free markets have swept the globe and brought positive change, nevertheless traditional capitalism cannot solve problems of inequality and poverty because of its view of people as one-dimensional beings concerned only with profit. In fact, human beings have many other drives and passions, including spiritual, social, and 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. Creating a World without Poverty tells the stories of some of the earliest examples of social businesses, including Yunus's own Grameen Bank. It reveals the next phase in an economic and social revolution that is already underway and in the worldwide effort to eliminate poverty by unleashing the productive energy of every human being.
