In the midst of government retrenchment, austerity, and growing inequality, social entrepreneurs have in recent years come to prominence as sources of ideas, innovation, and funding for solving problems in societies worldwide. In this book, author and activist Asheem Singh shows how the social entrepreneurship movement developed from a number of extremely modest initial ventures into a global humanitarian and financial juggernaut that is rethinking philanthropy, government, and even capitalism itself. An inspiring guide to a dynamic area of activism, The Moral Marketplace not only describes the current landscape of social entrepreneurism, but also reminds us that we all can play a crucial role in taking on the biggest challenges of our time.
