Here is the long-overdue obituary for the unbridled greed glorified by Atlas Shrugged and the prophet of profit. In her story, Rand let free-marketers John Galt, Dagney Taggart, and their accomplices return triumphant from their strike to remake the world in the image of Godless self-interest.

Am I the only one who liked this book who's not a Rand-hater? Judging by the 2 other reviews that have been written, it looks like the answer is yes. But how can I like both, you ask? The answer is simple: I like parody, even a parody of something that I like. For example, I have enjoyed many cops-and-robbers movies. I have also enjoyed the Naked Gun trilogy, which spoofs them.
