NATIONAL BESTSELLER A look at how our current crises are caused by too much government, and how Ayn Rand's bold defense of free markets can help us change course. The rise of the Tea Party and the 2010 election results revealed that tens of millions of Americans are alarmed by Big Government, but skeptical that anything can or will be done to stop the growth of the state. InFree Market Revolution, the keepers of Ayn Rand's legacy argue that the answer lies in her pioneering philosophy of capitalism and self-interest -a philosophy that more and more people are turning to for answers. In the past few years, Rand's works have surged to new peaks of popularity, as politicians like Paul Ryan, media figures like John Stossel, and businessmen like John Mackey routinely name her as one of their chief influences. Here, Brook and Watkins explain how her ideas can solve a host of political and economic ills, including the debt crisis, inflation, overregulation, and the swelling welfare state. And most important, they show how Rand's philosophy can enable defenders of the free market to sieze the moral high ground in the fight to limit government. This is a fresh and urgent look at the ideas of one of the most controversial figures in modern history - ideas that may prove the only hope for the future.… (mais)

This book does an impressive job of explaining how big government is inevitable give our value system, and how we frame the moral debate. Defense of capitalism and self-interest has been weak because the moral standards result in only a half hearted position. Thus, government grows as we slide toward a socialist society.

Some points that it makes:
- Selfishness is the foundation of progress
- Profit is noble
- Corrupt business will be rejected by consumers in a free society
- Even America has not been a totally free society
- America prospered because it was more free than other societies
- Division of labor increase productivity
- Monopoly is by government fiat
- Regulation punishes consumers
- Government made health care inefficient and expensive

There is also a chapter on the entitlement mentality

24 pages of "Notes" and an index.

As a Christian, I have some concerns about the views expressed in this book.

1 Corinthians 10:24 Let no man seek his own, but every man another’s wealth. (New Testament)

Mosiah 27: 4 That they should let no pride nor haughtiness disturb their peace; that every man should esteem his neighbor as himself, laboring with their own hands for their support. (Book of Mormon)
