Institute director to interview Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus on ‘Creating a World Without Poverty’

Rick Wartzman, director of the Drucker Institute, will interview Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus on Jan. 15 as part of the public lecture series ALOUD at the Los Angeles Central Library.

Their onstage conversation, which is set for 7 p.m., will focus on Yunus’s experience offering micro-credit to lift people out of poverty, as well as his next “big idea,” which centers on a pioneering model for a new, more humane form of capitalism.

Yunus’s new book, which will be released in early January, is called Creating a World Without Poverty.

Yunus is the founder and managing director of Grameen Bank and the author of the bestselling Banker to the Poor. Yunus and Grameen Bank won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize.
