Some critics described the politics in the movie Atlas Shrugged Part II as unrealistic, more reminiscent of Soviet Russia than the contemporary U.S. How realistic is the world of pull and the regulations like Directive 10-289 in the context of today's mixed economy and democratic electioneering?
In this interactive webinar, held on October 29, 2012, Atlas Society Director of Programs William R Thomas discussed the essential character of the regulatory state, the corrupting effect of economic regulation on democratic politics, and the ways in which Ayn Rand's Russian outlook does, and does not, translate to America.
Format: Audio with slide show. 78 minutes total. 32 minutes lecture followed by an open-ended audio and text interactive question-and-answer discussion.
