Paul Polak - Business Solution to Poverty
Sep 9 2013 7:30 pm
Colfax Avenue: Paul Polak, author of Out of Poverty: What Works When Traditional Approaches Fail, is widely regarded as the father of market-centered approaches to development. He started harnessing the energy of the marketplace 30 years ago when IDE, the organization he founded, sold 1.5 million treadle pumps to small farmers in Bangladesh, increasing their net income by more than $150 million a year. IDE has now enabled 20 million of the world’s poorest people to move out of poverty by offering practical solutions to rural poverty. Polak will discuss and sign his new book The Business Solution to Poverty: Designing Products and Services for Three Billion New Customers ($27.95 Berrett-Koehler).
