You Can’t Shrug This: Ayn Rand


Thanks to Samizdata for this post on the continuing relevance of Rand.  I had to smile as I read:

I keep coming across references from people saying that the present credit crisis and the governments’ response to it is something out of Atlas Shrugged.

Just yesterday I concluded yet another conversation with a banker in the back of my limo regarding the death of capital markets and Paulson picking winners and losers, asking “you ever read Any Rand’s book Atlas Shrugged?”.

By the way, if anyone knows anyone connected to the upcoming feature film “Atlas Shrugged”, I would love to say to Angelina Jolie “Who is John Galt?” . . . or simply be in a nano-second of a frame of the film.
