John Hope Bryant is one of America’s most famed empowerment leaders. The founder, chairman and CEO of Operation HOPE—a nonprofit private banker for low-income individuals and communities—and Bryant Group Companies authored How The Poor Can Save Capitalism: Rebuilding The Path To The Middle Class, an insightful book endorsed by President Bill Clinton. In How The Poor Can Save Capitalism, Bryant makes a persuasive argument in the value of investing in America’s least wealthy consumers.
In detail he breaks down the history and psychology of lack of self-confidence, lack of positive role models, and lack of opportunity—the three factors that perpetuate poverty. Bryant brings a solution to each of the three national issues and offers existing examples of organizations and people who are making substantial change at the grassroots level.
