CREATING A WORLD WITHOUT POVERTY by Muhammad Yunus (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “Muhammad Yunus is a practical visionary….” (Los Angeles Times) Designed to fill the gap between profit-making and human needs, social business applies entrepreneurial thinking to problems like poverty, hunger, pollution, and disease. Self-supporting enterprises then create jobs and generate economic growth even as they help make the world a better place. Partnering with some of the world’s greatest corporations, Yunus has already launched several social businesses and here offers practical guidance for others to create social businesses of their own. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator, Patrick Lawlor. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

RATING: Suitable for anyone interested in economics, or who want affect positive social change. ___________________ While free markets have brought positive change, traditional capitalism cannot solve problems of poverty because of its solely profit-driven view of people. In fact, humans have many other drives and passions. Welcome to the world of social business, where the creative vision of the entrepreneur is applied to today's most serious problems: feeding the poor, housing the homeless, healing the sick, and protecting the planet. The book tells the stories of some of the earliest examples of social businesses. It reveals the next phase in an economic and social revolution that is already underway and in the worldwide effort to eliminate poverty by unleashing the productive energy of every human being.
