For ages, money has been represented by little metal disks and rectangular slips of paper. Yet the usefulness of physical money--to say nothing of its value--is coming under fire as never before. Intrigued by the distinct possibility that cash will soon disappear, author and "Wired" contributing editor David Wolman sets out to investigate the future of money...and how it will affect your wallet. Told with verve and wit, "The End of Money" explores an aspect of our daily lives so fundamental that we rarely stop to think about it. You'll never look at a dollar bill the same way again.

Muhammad Yunus is that rare thing: a bona fide visionary. His dream is the total eradication of poverty from the world. In 1983, against the advice of banking and government officials, Yunus established Grameen, a bank devoted to providing the poorest of Bangladesh with minuscule loans. Grameen Bank, based on the belief that credit is a basic human right, not the privilege of a fortunate few, now provides over 2.5 billion dollars of micro-loans to more than two million families in rural Bangladesh. Ninety-four percent of Yunus's clients are women, and repayment rates are near 100 percent. Arou... View more info

In the last two decades, free markets have swept the globe. But traditional capitalism has been unable to solve problems like inequality and poverty. In Muhammad Yunus' groundbreaking sequel to "Banker to the Poor," he outlines the concept of social business--business where the creative vision of the entrepreneur is applied to today's most serious problems: feeding the poor, housing the homeless, healing the sick, and protecting the planet. "Creating a World Without Poverty" reveals the next phase in a hopeful economic and social revolution that is already underway. View more info
