Nobel Acceptance Speech by Yunus

Muhammad Yunus spoke in detail about how to tackle poverty, setting up social businesses, a mild critique of capitalism and globalization during his acceptance speech after receiving the Nobel Peace Prize yesterday.

The complete text of the speech is here.

There is also a video (somewhat funny because half the time the picture is turned upside down, though you would only want to listen to the audio!) at the Nobel site.

Yunus ensured that he mentioned about Telenor of Norway and his intention to convert GrameenPhones to a company owned by the poor people in Bangladesh.
