Two stories on Grameen and Microcredit

In Times (UK), Andrew Mitchell, MP who is the Shadow Secretary of State for International Development writes about his trip to Bangladesh and Grameen Bank, and what he saw there.

CNN is doing a special called "The Poverty Trap", "which airs Saturday and Sunday at 8 p.m. ET, former U.S. President Bill Clinton sat down with CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta to discuss micro-credit and other potential solutions for eradicating global poverty."

In Chennai, I won't get to see it, as I don't subscribe to CNN. It is not clear whether CNN broadcasts this program in India anyway. Perhaps, there will eventually be an archive online.
