Muhammad Yunus, recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, offers his vision of an emerging new economic system that can save humankind and the planet in A World of Three Zeros. Yunus, who created microcredit as founder of Grameen Bank and invented social business, is one of today's most trenchant social critics. In A World of Three Zeros, he declares it's time to admit that the capitalist engine is broken--that in its current form it inevitably leads to rampant inequality, massive unemployment, and environmental destruction. A World of Three Zeros outlines a new economic system that unleashes altruism as a creative force just as powerful as self-interest. Yunus discusses his work and takes questions, followed by a signing.
