Thursday night past we were fortunate enough to enjoy a fabulous presentation by Dr. Yaron Brook, president and executive director of The Ayn Rand Institute, co-author of Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand's Ideas Can End Big Government, where he argued "that we must embrace a new way of thinking about capitalism and self-interest" at a Nassau Institute event.
Dr. "Brook applies Rand's ideas to today's political events, with chapters addressing the debt crisis, inflation, regulation, the welfare state, and much more."
The introduction to the book starts out:
"In 2007, Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged sold 185,000 copies, an all-time record for the book. Fifty years after it was first published, readers were still captivated by Atlas’s unforgettable characters, its gripping plot, and its challenging ideas. We at the Ayn Rand Institute were elated but not entirely surprised. Thanks in part to our efforts, sales of Atlas Shrugged have been growing since Rand’s death in 1982. But even we did not expect what came next."
Can't wait to get into this one.
