Umair Haque: "The new capitalist manifesto" (review)

Link to my review of Umair Haque's recent book The new capitalist manifesto for the German information portal "The Intelligence": Das neue kapitalistische Manifest

The article is in German, so here's a quick summary in English: 

By reviewing Umair Haque’s new book "The new capitalist manifesto" I introduce German-speaking readers to his overall thinking and familiarize them with his witty and compelling methodology. Most
other authors that have elaborated on  socially responsible business ideas (and are better known to a German-speaking audience) sound rather sedate and old-unclish in comparison
As someone who condemns how human beings get reduced to statistical deviations in economic models, I very much appreciate Umair’s normative, humanistic approach to build a better economy.
