In my procrastination from reading the list of books that came along with my new job, I have discovered the “Add to My List” button on my library’s website. Amazing! Currently,my List is about 20 books long and I can’t wait to get to it! As for now, I’m reading, “Banker to the Poor Micro-lending and the battle against world poverty,” by Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus. It is, so far, an easy read, and should prepare me well for the unit I am scheduled to teach on Micro-lending. What is most interesting is the thought-process it is allowing me to have about my views on Capitalism. I suppose, in a Capitalist world, my idealism bring about great support for such an idea. However, my idealism spreads beyond a Capitalist world to a place where micro-lending, or any lending aside from lending your neighbor some sugar, isn’t necessary. It is pushing me to accept that I cannot change the world, but that there are small ways to make life better for people in the world as we know it.
