520    This book presents many innovative approaches to reducing 
       poverty through business commitment involvement, and 
       leadership. Some of these approaches may look promising 
       now at their current level of success but will turn out to
       be limited in their scalability or in their ability to 
       sustain themselves and endure over time. However, all of 
       them offer fruitful grounds for inquiry and learning. It 
       is our intention that sharing the learning from these 
       projects and initiatives from around the world will be 
       useful to others committed to assisting the poor in 
       escaping from poverty - especially by bringing the poor 
       into productive business activities. It is also our 
       intention that these experiences stimulate ideas for new 
       directions that build upon and go beyond the rich variety 
       of projects and successes described by the authors in this
       book. The book supports C K. Prahalad's work made 
       available in a number of ways including his very 
       influential book The Fortune at the Bottom ofthe Pyramid: 
       Eradicating Poverty through Profits (Wharton, 2004). 
       Prahalad's work has called attention to creative ways to 
       think about the question ofpoverty and how it might be 
       reduced and eventually eliminated. He suggests ways. 
       ofthinking and acting that break many ofthe traditional 
       rigidities that occur in how we think about markets and 
       business practices. Although one theme ofPrahalad's work 
       relates to the benefits of marketing to the poor by 
       supplying products better fitting the needs of low income 
       individuals and groups, his work also emphasizes ways in 
       which the poor can produce innovatively conceived and 
       designed products for themselves and for others. This 
       emphasis on enabling the poor to become productive is also
       presented forcefhuly in Craig and Peter Wilson' s, Make 
       Poverty Business: Increase Profits and Reduce Risks by 
       Engaging with the Poor Greenleaf 2006. Like Drucker, they 
       see the real challenge to be helping the poor find work 
       that is productive and sustainable. One of their 
       contributions is their emphasis on the importance of 
       creating access to credit and insurance as an important 
       part of enabling people to achieve productive livelihoods.
