When money lending is entrepreneurial and good for peace

We live in remarkable times. Who would have thought that a Nobel Peace Prize winner, and a money lender, as one in the same person, would be named by Business Week as one of "The Greatest Entrepreneurs of All Time." This is exactly what has happeed to Dr. Muhammad Yunus who founded a banking system 30 years ago to lend small amounts of money to the rural poor in Bangladeshi villages. Dr. Yunus is a builder of our new world, and one of my heroes.

Be remarkable
