Kevin Carson is an American social theorist and mutualist known for his left-libertarianism.[1]:28 He is a Senior Fellow and Karl Hess Chair in Social Theory at the Center for a Stateless Society.[2] Carson's Studies in Mutualist Political Economy aims to revive interest in mutualism, synthesizing Austrian economics with the labor theory of value by incorporating both subjectivism and time preference.[3] His work has been addressed by anarcho-capitalist economist Walter Block [4] and his Center for a Stateless Society colleague, the philosopher Roderick T. Long.[5]
