Muhammad Yunus in conversation with Iñaki Gabilondo

75 years of Paidós

Arequipa 2020, 

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.
