about

There is a growing realization that business development is the most effective weapon in fighting world poverty. How the for-profit model can be harnessed to provide the poor with a share in the world's prosperity is discussed through actual cases, and nested in innovative theories of business, social sciences, and philosophy. 
Charles Wankel is associate professor of Management at Peter J. Tobin College of Business, St. John's University.
