There are times when Professor Yunus' aims for Glasgow sound like something out of the Conservative's "Big Society" pitch. His latest book, Building Social Business, is 300 pages of Big Society pleading for people to go out there and create businesses which generate cash and contribute to the greater good at the same time. --The Independent, June 6, 2010
In nine short, well-written chapters, Yunus provides genuine insight into global poverty and a unique perspective on the ways in which social businesses can coexist with traditional businesses to alleviate poverty and improve the lives of the world's citizens. --CHOICE, September 2010
[A] reminder that capitalism can take kindlier forms: microfinance pioneer Yunus explains how he believes social enterprise can redeem what he regards as the failed promise of free markets. --The Spectator, June 2010

than an encouragent to evaluate privatly owned current business
models, and community owned social businesses and enterprises.
I found this book, analytical, well researched and a guide
of things to come....
