The Literature of Capitalism

Fifty years ago, Ayn Rand published a book that continues to inspire fans and critics. The book was Atlas Shrugged. People have been loving it or hating it ever since.

Among the business people who say Atlas Shrugged positively influenced their thinking are John Allison, CEO of BB&T; Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the Federal Reserve and a one-time member of the Rand inner-circle; Darla Moore, vice president of Rainwater, Inc., and benefactress of the University of South Carolina School of Business; and Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks.
