Muhammad Yunus (Bangladesh) won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize for his work on the eradication of poverty and in favour of social justice. Known as the “the Banker to the Poor”, in 1983 he created the Grameen Bank, which gave microcredit loans to women living in conditions of poverty. His most recent book, A World of Three Zeros. The New Economics of Zero Poverty, Zero Unemployment and Zero Net Carbon Emissions, sets out the most damaging effects of capitalism as we know it today: social inequality, massive unemployment and the systematic destruction of the environment. What new kind of economic model would make it possible to overcome these serious problems? Yunus dares to answer this difficult question. In conversation with Iñaki Gabilondo.

Hay Festival Classics relaunches a series of unforgettable events from different Hay Festivals, featuring some of the most outstanding figures from the world of literature and ideas. With a fresh viewpoint and subtitles in Spanish, we present conversations that will never lose their power. The Israeli historian and thinker, Yuval Noah Harari, has travelled the world talking about his remarkable books, which include Sapiens, Homo Deus and 21 Lessons for the 21st Century. In conversation with Anita Anand at the 2015 Hay Festival Wales, Harari talks about Sapiens, a book that takes in the whole of human history, from the experiences of the first humans to walk the earth to the advances brought by the cognitive, agricultural and scientific revolutions. How did we start to believe in gods, nations and human rights? How did we come to trust money, books and laws? How will the world be in the centuries to come? Drawing on ideas and evidence from biology, anthropology, palaeontology and economics, the author explores how our human societies and the wider world around them were created or altered by the hand of Homo sapiens.Buy 21 lecciones para el siglo XXI by Yuval Noah Harari at SBS
