A luncheon talk for young professionals, featuring Dr. Yaron Brook.
In the wake of bailouts, stimulus packages, regulatory expansion and the looming onset of ObamaCare, many Americans are alarmed by the rapid growth of the state. But previous rebellions against Big Government, such as the “swing to the right” of the 1980s, failed to substantially roll back government intervention in the economy. Will today’s revolt be different? In this talk, Dr. Brook, executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute, will offer his assessment, based on a revolutionary view of why government intervention grows—and what must be done in order to stop it. His provocative conclusion: to successfully stop the growth of the state, Americans will have to discover that laissez-faire capitalism is the only moral system—one that must be defended without guilt.
