Compassionate capitalism, pt. II

I know, it's probably an oxymoron. Let's just say "social entrepreneurism" then.

Anyway, the New Heroes series continues tonight on PBS with "The Power of Enterprise" and "The Power of Knowledge." The episodes will be re-broadcast on Saturday, 3-5 PM.

For those of you in New Orleans, that's WYES Channel 12, 8-10 PM.

In my previous post:

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
