While free markets have brought positive change, traditional capitalism cannot solve problems of inequality and poverty because of its view of people as solely profit-driven. In fact, humans have other drives and passions, including spiritual, social, and altruistic. 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. Creating a world without poverty tells the stories of some of the earliest examples of social businesses, including Yunus's own Grameen Bank. 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.

This book can change your understanding about creating a new banking system from scratch with very little money and concepts of borrowing and lending monies.
Professor Muhammed Yunus and his team worked so hard to improve the livelihood of poor people of Bangladesh. Their team work, un-imaginable patience and dedication can not be rewarded enough. There are lots of lessons in this book.
This is a must read/listen book.
