Last week our good friends in An Objective University of Washington hosted Dr. Yaron Brook, the President and Executive Director of the Ayn Rand Institute for a talk about the moral basis for capitalism. Discussing everything from selfishness to child labor to public education, Dr. Brook holds the free market in high regard and demands a complete separation between government and economy:


I often find myself debating this with conservatives:  Is radical libertarianism as impractical as communism -- good in theory but inconsistent with human nature? Or is what Dr. Brook envisions attainable?

Also, if you would like to watch the rest of the talk, you can find parts 2-9 here.
