    Story
    (45)

    The rise of the Tea Party and the 2010 election results revealed that tens of millions of Americans are alarmed by big government but skeptical that anything can or will be done to stop the growth of the state. In Free Market Revolution, the keepers of Ayn Rand’s legacy argue that the answer lies in Rand’s pioneering philosophy of capitalism and self-interest—a philosophy that more and more people are turning to for answers.

    John says: "Ayn Rand is relevant today"
    "Finally, a strong MORAL defense for capitalism"

    Story
    What did you love best about Free Market Revolution?

    This might be the most important book to defend capitalism ever published. Seriously. If not ever, then definitely of the last decade. It shows why true free markets, or laissez faire capitalism, is the only system to not only be politically and economically sustainable, but is the purest in it's morality as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It really breaks down governments short comings, and how it's policies and interference with the free market has lead to where we are today.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Breaking down the over regulated banking institutions, and how those regulations lead to the collapse of those institutions and the bailouts that occurred thereafter.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    The moral defense of what Rand called "rational selfishness" in compared to altruism that is rampant in our society (the idea that you are your brother's keeper). Really opened my eyes to some new ways of thinking.
