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.
