Salute to Bangladeshi anti-poverty pioneers week continues

Well, hot on the heels of my recent post on Grameen Phone founder Iqbal Quadir, the Nobel committee has seen fit to honor Grameen Bank founder Muhammad Yunus with a small honor they call the Peace Prize. Warmest congratulations to Mr. Yunus, and a high-five to the Nobel committee for realizing that empowering individuals and unleashing their enterprising natures is the most effective way to lift millions of people from poverty.

We have many, many more millions to go.
