Ayn Rand Nation Excerpt at Bloomberg View
Bloomberg View published today an excerpt from Ayn Rand Nation, which can be found here.
The Bloomberg excerpt is from Chapter Nine, "The First Teabagger," in which I describe how Rand made comments in a radio interview that presaged the Tea Party, and predicted a market crash worse than 1929. She also roundly denounced budget deficits, and generally sounded as if she'd hopped off a stage at a Tea Party Rally.
There's also an article on the book at Counterpunch today by Pam Martens, a former Wall Street whistle-blower.
