After Tuesday’s election, we could use some talk about a needed Free Market Revolution. Yaron Brook, president and executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute, will be in Chicago with The Heartland Institute on Wednesday, November 14 to talk about the way up for liberty — and about his latest book: Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government.
REGISTER TO ATTEND HERE.
In Brook’s new book, Free Market Revolution, the keepers of Ayn Rand’s legacy argue that the answer to what ails America lies in her pioneering philosophy of capitalism and self-interest — a philosophy that more and more people are turning to for answers. In the past few years, Rand’s works have surged to new peaks of popularity, as politicians like Paul Ryan, media figures like John Stossel, and businessmen like John Mackey routinely name her as one of their chief influences.
