Defending Capitalism

Yaron Brook

Presented at: OCON 2010

Date: Jul 02, 2010

Ayn Rand called capitalism the “unknown ideal,” arguing that “it is capitalism’s alleged champions who are responsible for the fact that capitalism is being destroyed without a hearing, without a trial, without any public knowledge of its principles, its nature, its history, or its moral meaning.” In this talk, Dr. Brook shows how Objectivism succeeds at making the case for free markets, and why capitalism’s traditional defenders have failed. Special emphasis is given to Objectivism’s radical moral defense of free markets and Ayn Rand’s view that capitalism is the system of objectivity.
