IN THIS SUMMARY

For many people, there is more to life than making money, and happiness comes from many sources not just making a profit. Therefore, an economy based on the premise that profits are the only goal is misguided. In his book, Building Social Business, Muhammad Yunus argues there should be a new kind of business that takes into account the human desire to help others. Social business is a new form of capitalism that is dedicated to solving pressing problems, such as hunger, homelessness, disease, pollution, and ignorance. Many of these problems are not the fault of those who suffer from them, but a result of a system that is rigged against them. Yunus believes the time has come to rebuild and restructure the world’s economy and put business techniques and innovations to work to solve social problems.
