A WORLD OF THREE ZEROS

THE NEW ECONOMICS OF ZERO POVERTY

1 January 2018

Muhammad Yunus

In this book, the Grameen Bank founder and Nobel Peace Prize recipient Mohammad Yunus argues that capitalism is an unsustainable system which has increased inequality, unemployment and environmental degradation. The adverse effects of relentless global growth are disproportionately felt in poor countries such as Bangladesh. He offers a blueprint for a sustainable economy, which aims at zero carbon emissions, zero poverty and zero unemployment, built by thousands of small firms—such as ones supplying solar power—driven by both social concern and profit motives.
