What if you could harness the power of the free market to solve the problems of poverty, hunger, and inequality? To some, it sounds impossible. But Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus is doing exactly that.Bonsai People celebrates Yunus&́#x80;™ extraordinary humanitarian work, which started by lending [dollar sign]27 to 42 people out of his own pocket and has now grown to helping 1 out of every 1,000 people on earth. But he didn&́#x80;™t stop there - whenever he sees a problem he starts a business, creating a mix between business and social work, which he&́#x80;™s coined "social business."By tackling some of the world&́#x80;™s most vexing problems from healthcare, education to alternative energy, he is demonstrating to the world that complex problems sometimes do have simple answers. Microcredit is just the tip of the iceberg!
