The author was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2011.

The challenges of the twenty-first century are significant: climate change, gap widening between the rich and the poor, demographical growth, globalization. Is it possible to solve these problems in our economical and political system? Which institutions, which businesses would be able to face theses challenges? Professor Yunus suggests creating social businesses to correct the dysfunctions of the market economy and to transform capitalism.
