Profiting Off the Poor

Posted Friday, October 20, 2006

The greatest opportunity for world business won't be found in the middle class and affluent. It lies with the poorest of the poor. Profiting off the poor sounds immoral, doesn't it? Actually, it could make good business sense for everybody. We'll hear from a thinker who says business can make a buck and help the poor at the same time. We'll talk about that and the whole concept of corporate citizenship Friday morning on The Sound of Ideas.
