Don Watkins, Laissez Faire (Ayn Rand Institute) Capitalism |Egoism |Objectivist author | [A]lthough Free Market Revolution is about Rand’s political philosophy, Rand was not primarily a political philosopher. She was a philosopher, concerned primarily with the question of what kind of life the individual should live. Politics and economics were, for her, important but derivative issues. In short, her ethics of rational self-interest was not a rationalization for capitalism–she embraced capitalism because she believed in rational self-interest.
