"'Since ‘economic growth’ is today’s great problem, and our present Administration is promising to ‘stimulate’ it -- to achieve general prosperity by ever wider government controls, while spending an unproduced wealth ...' Any contemporary libertarian or Austrian-school economist could have written those words. The quotation, however, is from Ayn Rand’s opening paragraph to the essay 'Let Us Alone,' published in the 1966 book, Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal." (09/16/11)
