Muhammad Yunus in his book creating a world without poverty explains how he thinks capitalism is a half developed structure, because it assumes that people are one dimensional beings only concerned about maximizing profit for themselves. And the theory behind free markets is that the best way you can contribute to society and to the world is by doing just that, getting the most for yourself. 
However it is not working, and we believe the reason why we are seeing the current economic crisis is because of this conceptual failure, because people are not one-dimensional beings, they have many other interests beyond maximizing profit, and they have many other needs.
Entrepreneur Commons is resolving this tension.
