Barry on Atlas

December 2, 2008

I have never read the novel, but have some idea what it stands for.  Plus I have a soft spot for irony, so I find Barry’s point very funny:

“The work has become the Das Kapital of the 20th century . . . Both were wrong, too long, and poorly written — and each has proven to be wildly destructive to the political economy.

Ironically, only one has been shown to be damaging to capitalism itself — and that wasn’t Marx’s s work, it was Rand’s.”
