9781419715983: The Age of Selfishness: Ayn Rand, Morality, and the Financial Crisis
Présentation de l'éditeur :

Tracking the emergence of Ayn Rand's philosophy of objectivism in the 1940s to her present-day influence, Darryl Cunningham's latest work of graphic-nonfiction investigation leads readers to the heart of the global financial crisis of 2008. By tracing the roots of our bankrupt economies, Cunningham uses Rand's biography to illuminate the policies that led to the economic crash in the US and in Europe; he shows how Rand became one of the most influential writers of her time; and he demonstrates how her philosophy continues to affect today's politics and policies, starting with her most noted disciple, economist Alan Greenspan (former chairman of the Federal Reserve). Cunningham also shows how right-wing conservatives, libertarians, and the rise of the Tea Party movement have co-opted Rand's teachings (and inherent contradictions) to promote personal gain and profit at the expense of the "47 percent." Tackling the complexities of economics by distilling them down to a series of concepts accessible to all age groups, Cunningham ultimately delivers a devastating analysis of our current economic world.

He speaks with quiet authority on his subjects, but is careful to cite a whole range of sources and research papers." —Independent"It’s good to see the arguments presented so well, clearly, and concisely . . . Cunningham delivers his message with style, great art, even moments of outright comedy."—Forbidden Planet. N° de réf. du libraire 5746819
