Embrace the World with Both Arms

I've mentioned before my admiration for micro-credit (see the big Kiva link in my sidebar... go on, kick in $25 and make the world a little better place).

Here is a wonderful talk from Jacqueline Novogratz(say that three times as fast as you can!) about what she has termed as patient capitalism.. A middle ground between profit at all risk capitalism and charity that too often forces the poor into a worse position than they started from. It's not enough to talk about world peace, you gotta make it happen...
Hope you enjoy it
