Thought To Ponder
Politicians say they create jobs, but they really don't. Or rather, they rarely create productive jobs. Government has no money of its own. All it does is take resources from one group and give them to another. The pharaohs might have claimed they created work when they ordered that pyramids be built, but think how much richer (and freer) the Egyptians would have been if they'd been allowed to pursue their own interests.
It's individuals in the marketplace who create real jobs -- when they have the protection of life and property under the rule of law.
Free Market Revolution book talk with Dr. Yaron Brook. A complimentary event.
25 January 2013
The Nassau Institute
Yaron Brook joins us to speak on his latest book 'Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand's Ideas Can End Big Government', which argues that we must embrace a new way of thinking about capitalism and self-interest - one first spearheaded by popular novelist-philosopher Ayn Rand. Brook applies Rand's ideas to today's political events, with chapters addressing the debt crisis, inflation, regulation, the welfare state, and much more.
Yaron Brook is executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute. A former finance professor, he has published in academic as well as popular publications and is frequently interviewed in the media. He has appeared on CNN, Fox Business Network, Fox News Channel, CNBC and PBS, among others. He lectures on Objectivism, business ethics and foreign policy at college campuses and for corporations across America and throughout the world. He is the co-author of the national bestseller Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government.
This free event is open to the public and is scheduled for Thursday, February 7, 2013 at 7:00pm at the Nassau Yacht Club.

Here's a quote from the liner notes of Free Market Revolution:
"In "Free Market Revolution, " the keepers of Ayn Rand's legacy""argue that the answer 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. Here, Brook and Watkins explain how her ideas can solve a host of political and economic ills, including the debt crisis, inflation, overregulation, and the swelling welfare state. And most important, they show how Rand's philosophy can enable defenders of the free market to sieze the moral high ground in the fight to limit government. This is a fresh and urgent look at the ideas of one of the most controversial figures in modern history - ideas that may prove the only hope for the future."
