Publisher's Summary

The foundations of capitalism are being battered by a flood of altruism, which is the cause of the modern world's collapse. This was the view of Ayn Rand, a view so radically opposed to prevailing attitudes that it constituted a major philosophic revolution. In this series of essays, she presented her stand on the persecution of big business, the causes of war, the default of conservatism, and the evils of altruism. Here is a challenging look at modern society by a woman who was one of the most provocative intellectuals on the American scene. Ms. Rand's unique philosophy, Objectivism, has gained a worldwide audience.

Ashame this is not taught in our

-horrible statist-schools -paid with tax dollars. I recently spoke with a high school economics teacher. This woman had a lesser understanding of how the Federal Reserve works than most lay people I know. Its a sad state of affairs when these are the statist appointed people teaching our future generations. This book is so rational and so true in stating the cause & effect of the last 100 years of the US and its failing economy. Even thought this book is over 40 years old it rings as true, if not more so. We are seeing our country falling into socialism/communism run by statist who want to extort our wealth and redistribute it as they see fit. Every US citizen should read this book. Its about time we start to understand why our country's production and development have slowed to a crawl since 1890. You cannot afford to not listen to this book.
