Microfinance at a Crossroads

Author

Listed:
  • Diego Lanzi

Abstract

In this essay, we summarize the main features of Yunus' economic thought and discuss whether it is possible to conclude, as seems straightforward according to Yunus (1997), that microfinance is good for the poor and that it exemplifies a typical activity of social enterprise. To do this, we review some of the contents of the 2006 World Bank/Brookings Institution conference on microfinance as summarized by Barr et al. (2007). Copyright 2008 The Author Journal compilation 2008 Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena SpA.
