The man known for inventing microfinance, Muhammad Yunus, thinks that capitalism has grown too "greed-oriented.” Yunus won a Nobel Peace Prize in 2006 for his work lending money at low interest rates to budding entrepreneurs around the world. In his new book "A World of Three Zeros,” Yunus argues that environmental destruction, unemployment and devastating inequality demonstrate that capitalism is broken. He'll discuss the book and lay out his vision for how to fix capitalism and attain economic prosperity for all.
