The Nobel Prize–winning economist, hailed as the “banker to the poor,” is a man on a mission. The father of microcredit has set out with his latest book, A World of Three Zeros, to demonstrate that the capitalist engine is broken—and that what’s needed to replace it is an economic system in which altruism can thrive as powerfully as self-interest. While some may dismiss the idea as fantasy, Muhammad Yunus demonstrates that it is an achievable, pragmatic reality—one which innovative social entrepreneurs around the globe are already unleashing. Join him at NYPL to learn how people of all ages, from established leaders to ordinary citizens can take part.
