Prosperity & Poverty

Prosperity, Poverty and the Purpose of Business Annotated Bibliography: In preparation for the 2015 Manila Conference, the materials in this “Annotated Bibliography” address the relationship between Prosperity, Poverty, and the Purpose of Business—words that may not seem to fit together—yet, they do. Although not exhaustive, these materials reflect a broad brush of primary and secondary research found in case studies, books, journal articles, videos, and so on. Together, they acknowledge the complexity of poverty and explore various paths people have taken to create successes.  Poverty AB
