Robin, Corey. Forced to choose: capitalism as existentialism. 2012 Oct 18. Available from: http://coreyrobin.com/2012/10/18/forced-to-choose-capitalism-as-existentialism/. Accessed 2013 Apr 14. Archived by WebCite at http://www.webcitation.org/6FtIMLCXZ.
In this very brief article, Robin locates the moral center of capitalism in the glorification of scarcity and of the hard choices that scarcity forces us to make. Right-libertarian theorists such as Ludwig von Mises see forced choices as the font of life’s meaning.
