Muhammad Yunus to release new book "A World of Three Zeros"

Mon, 2017-07-10 14:18

We're so excited to announce that this September, Professor Muhammad Yunus, inventor of microcredit, founder of Grameen Bank, and co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, will release his first new book in seven years. In A World of Three Zeros: The New Economics of Zero Poverty, Zero Unemployment, and Zero Net Carbon Emissions, Yunus 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. To save humankind and the planet, we need a new economic system based on a more realistic vision of human nature—one that recognizes altruism and generosity as driving forces that are just as fundamental and powerful as self-interest. The book is available for preorder now at all online and local booksellers, and the publisher, PublicAffairs/Hachette Book Group, is for a limited time offering a free copy of Banker to the Poor with proof of preorder.
