Compassionate capitalism

Robert Redford hosts a four-part series, New Heroes, profiling "social entrepreneurs" who are “applying business skills to solving social ills” around the world.

"Social entrepreneurs identify resources where people only see problems. They view the villagers as the solution, not the passive beneficiary. They begin with the assumption of competence and unleash resources in the communities they're serving."

David Bornstein, author of How to Change the World: Social Entrepreneurs and the Power of New Ideas

The first two episodes of New Heroes will be broadcast again in New Orleans:
