Muhammad Yunus speaking @ Google 1/25/08


Mr. Yunus, the pioneer of microfinance, speaks at Google about his latest book A World Without Poverty which takes the idea of microfinance to the next level with a new idea dubbed social businesses.  Social businesses differ from traditional businesses in that they exist to help others but are similar to traditional businesses in that capital may be raised through the use of a “social stock market.”  Interesting stuff.
