UPDATE 1: I am recording a podcast of my essay for the Manhattan Institute. I will post a link when it is ready.
UPDATE 1.1: And here is the link to the podcast that the Manhattan Institute created. I am interviewed by Howard Husock, Vice President at MI. The podcast lasts about 11 minutes.
UPDATE 2: My essay has generated some media interest. I am being interviewed today (5/1/12) on the Lars Larson radio program at approximately 7:20pm Eastern.
UPDATE 3: Mary Kissel, a member of the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal, tweeted: "My May Day reading: 'The Moral Case for Capitalism.'"
UPDATE 4: The American Enterprise Blog put my piece on its "must reads" for May 1, as did the Wall Street Journal's "Secondary Sources."
UPDATE 5 (5/4/12): I'll be on Glenn Beck's internet-based television show this afternoon, during the 3:30pm - 4:30pm slot, talking about the morality of capitalism. I've also just scheduled an interview on the Randy Tobler radio show for about 8am Eastern on Saturday, 5/5/12. UPDATE 12:28pm: The GBTV producer has informed me that they're nixing the "economics" segment on which I was to appear; we'll reschedule.
UPDATE 6: My original MI piece has now broken the 400+ FB "like" and 100+ Tweet marks. Woo-hoo!
