In this episode, Gloria Álvarez interviews philosopher Gregory Salmieri and explores some of the issues raised in his book (co-edited with Robert Mayhew) Foundations of a Free Society: Reflections on Ayn Rand’s Political Philosophy. They discuss Ayn Rand’s strong views against anarchism, the nature of free markets and why free markets are impossible under anarchism.
