    One small nitpick, people can think in economic terms while looking at
    human rights by using utility functions and utility theory.
    Essentially, you should aim to maximise your own utility, whether your
    utility is defined by maximal wealth or by some other less tangible

This presumes all values can be represented in one linear scale.  (I
don't think that is true for most people.)  It presumes one has an
answer to the question, "How much money is your freedom worth?"
