In this talk Nobel laureate Muhammad Yunus will outline a radical new plan to fix global capitalism and create a new economics of Zero Poverty, Zero Unemployment and Zero Carbon Emissions. At a time when eight individuals now own more wealth than 50 per cent of the global population, and high unemployment in many countries means that people’s skills, knowledge, and creativity are being wasted and with rampant environmental destruction only adding to this picture of a bleak future , there has to be another way. In this talk drawing on his new book a ‘World of Three Zeroes’ Professor Yunus will offer a challenge to young people, business and political leaders, and ordinary citizens everywhere to embrace a new form of capitalism, where altruism and generosity are valued as much as profit making, and where individuals not only have the capacity to lift themselves out of poverty, but also to affect real change for the planet and its people.
