Muhammad Yunus and the Financial Crisis

After my blog below on Muhammad Yunus and microfinancing, we met for a conversation on the financial crisis and the future of social business. The use of leverage can be used to break down trust or build up trust (in Grameen Bank, the average loan holder now has built $150 in savings for each $100 in loan). While macro financing has proven its power to sieze up flow when trust vanishes, micro financing is proving its power to open flow when trust is built up.
