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.

Capitalism: The unknown ideal

Ayn Rand is amazing, I found it hard to believe she was writing in the 60s. It could have been written today. What was true then is even more true today. Should be a must read in college. Whether you agree with her or not, her logic is impeccible. And her defense of Capitalism is first rate and I believe to be true.
