• • • George Monbiot Blames Ayn Rand and Alan Greenspan For Just About Everything
Tim Worstall, Forbes Alan Greenspan |Altruism |Ayn Rand Institute |Capitalism |Egoism | I have to admit that this piece by George Monbiot in today’s Guardian produced a couple of chuckles. For those of you who don’t know Monbiot sees himself as the advocate and guardian of all that is good and holy in left wingery and environmentalism. Wrap up Bill McKibben with Harold Meyerson and you’re getting there. Today’s subject for his column is the pernicious effect that Ayn Rand and her acolyte Alan Greenspan have had on the modern world. They’re blamed for everything from the financial crash to the Tea Party.
