Post reprint: How endless choice is making us endlessly miserable

Spoilt for Choice

What struck me while reading this article is the close relationship between the amount of choices and the information overload that is also prevalent in our culture. We demand more choices with our “things,” but we also demand more information. The two tie together when we demand more choices for information – the absurd amount of media outlets is a perfect example. Our culture is drowning in too many choices and too much information. We are not only consumers of “things” but of information in every aspect of the word.
