Weekend Reads

“You alone can change the world – don’t wait for anybody else. You alone can change the world. Not because you will actually be alone but because you will be such a power, like a magnet you will bring everybody to your ideas. Ideas are the power, demonstration is the power: then you make it happen,” the inspirational Nobel Peace Prize winner Professor Muhammad Yunus told me on an episode of the Inside Ideas podcast.

Nicknamed the banker to the poor, Professor Yunus founded the Grameen Bank in 1983 with the goal to give poorer people access to ‘small loans on easy terms’ – and its achievements generating ‘economic and social development from below’ led to his 2006 Nobel Peace Prize. In his book, A World of Three Zeros: The New Economics of Zero Poverty, Zero Unemployment, and Zero Net Carbon Emissions, he explains the economics of this.

Catch up my interview with Professor Yunus on Inside Ideas for more on what will deliver a world of three zeros.
