Muhammad Yunus Lecture and Book Signing
October 12, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree but registration required
About the event: The evening’s program includes a talk, Q&A, book sales and book signing. Muhammad Yunus will discuss his vision and his provocative new book, “A World of Three Zeros, The New Economics of Zero Poverty, Zero Unemployment, and Zero Net Carbon Emissions” (Public Affairs Books).
About the Speaker: Muhammad Yunus is the father of both social business and microcredit, and was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for his work in alleviating poverty, is one of today’s most trenchant social critics. Now he 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. We need a new economic system that unleashes altruism as a creative force just as powerful as self-interest.
Book available at: Elliott Bay Book Company and will also be on sale at the event.
Doors open at 6pm
