Muhammad Yunus Awarded Nobel Peace Prize
And finally, the Nobel Peace Prize was announced earlier today.
- Ole Danbolt Mjøs: The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2006, divided into two equal parts, to Muhammad Yunus and Grameen Bank for their efforts to create economic and social development from below. Lasting peace can not be achieved unless large population groups find ways in which to break out of poverty. Micro-credit is one such means.
