One of the worst opinion articles I have read…

It has been a while since I have read an article so misguided. Nicolaus Mills seems like an intelligent person, but he seems oblivious to his philosophical bias. I appreciate his appeal for patriotism. He assumes that his readers will desire patriotism, and I like that. But he presumes that he or anyone else is […]

Hank Rearden, and the first look at the bracelet

Nice clip of Hank Rearden, coming home to an ungrateful family, after a long day at the mill. This is the day that Rearden poured Rearden Metal for the first time. It’s perfect. I saw the movie in its entirety this Thursday. Brilliant. I will be writing a full review soon. Become a fan! Visit […]

Lessons from Aristotle

A great article from FT.com. I think the author hits more than one chord straight on. Martin Sandbu is the lead writer for FT’s economics. His book Just Business: Arguments in Business Ethics has just been published by Prentice Hall. I am delighted to say that I think he nails it! Excellent advice for bankers and business leaders […]

A week after the event, I spoke with John Aglialoro, producer of the movie Atlas Shrugged. His optimism about the message and the quality of the film is crystal […]

The Time Has Indeed Come!

Governors of 35 states have already filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.  For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire […]

Yaron Brook, from a CNN Post

Consider how just two fundamental ideas have ushered in the modern world. Rewind a scant 600 years, and modern science doesn’t yet exist. Men and women live and die in squalor and filth, largely ignorant of the germs that ravage their bodies and of the natural laws that govern the universe, instead imploring an alleged […]

The Taggart Boardroom

Atlas Shrugged enthusiasts will remember that Nathaniel Taggart founded Taggart Transcontinental and set up the company’s headquarters in New York. In the upcoming movie version of Atlas Shrugged (Part 1), the scene of the boardroom is portrayed with the set pictured to the left. I didn’t see this particular set, but it is the scene […]
