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