Many thanks for your film about Joseph Schumpeter, which I watched with great interest. The production has international standards, and the pace and visual language are very appealing. Most importantly: I find the topic to be extremely relevant. It is a current topic in our time. The material is also presented well and coherently.Sebastian StolzN24 Welt
I just saw “The Man Who Discovered Capitalism”. I think it is very, very good, and I absolutely enjoyed watching it! And of course – I really admire that the project – after so many tries – is now finished and is turned into a very good documentary.Saskia WeisheitDirector
Apart from being entertaining, even for historians of economic thought, this Schumpeter documentary is highly recommendable for use in class. With its format of 52 minutes and numerous highlights for discussion it can serve as introductory medium in a broad range of courses.

This fascinating documentary links Josephs Schumpeter’s ideas to the digital revolution. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to know how innovation changes the world.
What are the driving forces behind economic growth? How do entrepreneurs and investors contribute to the economy? To what extent should the state play a role in a capitalist economy? These are just some of the questions addressed by the thought-provoking and brilliantly pieced-together documentary Schumpeter. Cleverly blending historical reconstructions, directing interviews with leading economic thinkers and entrepreneurs. The documentary pays special attention to the modern-day digital revolution.Dr. John Goodyear
