Ayn Rand And I
Published on : Tuesday, August 3, 2010
Anne C Heller connects the individualist philosophy of Ayn Rand to her childhood as an awkward, willful child of Russian-Jewish origins. To Ayn Rand, the prosperity that came with capitalism was only a side effect. She became a writer for a purely selfish motive to create her own world, writes Gurcharan Das.
The Road To Economic Security
Published on : Thursday, July 15, 2010
Ambitious Goverment plans to legislate economic security into existence have failed miserably. It is forgotten that institutionalizing coercion can't lead to security-economic or otherwise. Economic security is a corollary of freedom and peace, writes Shanu A.

Ayn Rand, according Anne C Hellers biography, used to begin conversations with the question “what are your premises?” Ayn Rand represents the world of 20th Century big business to many.

Capitalism: Hollywood's Miscast Villain
Published on : Friday, June 4, 2010
Capitalism always had a bad press. Even in movies, it isn't represented fairly. Movies blame capitalism for all the evils of the society, and capitalists are cast as villains.Much of the anger is due to the conflict between directors, screenwriters and backers.Hollywood, however, is one of the greatest successes of captalism, writes Alex Tabarrok in The Wall Street Journal.
Ayn Rand's Philosophy Has Changed The Way I Think
Published on : Tuesday, January 12, 2010
Ayn Rand's philosophy has affected the way I think about everything. It is the almost startling and refreshing style of stating the truth that caught me. I have tried to imbibe precisely that. Another thing that Rand taught me was to question. Everything! I am not afraid of that anymore, says Nishaad Rao.
The Berlin Wall Then and Now
Published on : Thursday, November 5, 2009
The Cold War crystallized the battle between two philosophies, one of individualism and freedom, the other of collectivism and repression. The Soviet bloc collapsed under the burden of its own contradictions and in the face of Western diligence and military might. Those who value their lives and liberty must tear down that false philosophy lest new walls rise to separate us from our freedom, writes Edward Hudgins in The Atlas Society.

Rand’s Atlas is still shrugging
Published on : Wednesday, June 3, 2009
Rand depicted government and companies colluding in the name of economic rescue at the expense of the entrepreneur. That entrepreneur is like the titan Atlas who carries the rest of the world on his shoulders—until he doesn’t. You get the feeling plenty of Atlases are shrugging these days, in part because their tax burden is getting heavier. Yet President Barack Obama has made it clear he would like to see the rich pay a greater share. Anyone irked can find consolation in Rand’s fantasy, where the most valued professionals evaporate because of such demands, writes Amity Shlaes in the Mint.
Atlas Shrugged: Fiction turned to fact
Published on : Friday, January 9, 2009
The current economic strategy is right out of "Atlas Shrugged": The more incompetent you are in business, the more handouts the politicians will bestow on you. That's the justification for the $2 trillion of subsidies doled out already to keep afloat distressed insurance companies, banks, Wall Street investment houses, and auto companies – while standing next in line for their share of the booty are real-estate developers, the steel industry, chemical companies, airlines, ethanol producers, construction firms and even catfish farmers, writes Stephen Moore in The Wall Street Journal.
