In his newest book, microlending pioneer Muhammad Yunus takes stock of economic progress over the past several years and then sets new goals for global development.

As president and chief visionary officer of Milwaukee microlending and business coaching organization Wisconsin Women’s Business Initiative Corp., Wendy Baumann is a fan of Yunus’ work. So when she heard about his latest book, “A World of Three Zeros,” she ordered it immediately.

“Those three zeros are zero poverty, zero unemployment and zero net carbon emissions,” Baumann said.

Among the approaches he suggests to accomplishing the three zeros are: Empower younger people; use athletics to foster teamwork; unleash the power of science with technology; and practice good government and governance.

“It gives you some hope that if you highlight some of these huge goals and if we work together as nations and partnerships, that we can accomplish some of these huge goals,” Baumann said.
