I won’t spend too much time on this – it’s a straightforward graphic novel look at the connections between the Objectivism of Ayn Rand and the financial crisis of the 2000s. The lines are occasionally drawn too tightly, but in general this novel a) helped me understand the mess that was Ayn Rand and her personal life and b) the gradual creep to horrendous business practices that resulted in TARP and other bullshit.
Perhaps the oddest piece? The fact that so many smart people get drawn into the world of Rand. Obama didn’t pull it off as well as Elizabeth Warren did, but the ‘you didn’t build it’ speech seems so patently self-obvious to me that I’m not sure how anyone (*cough* “trump” *cough*) can be so arrogant.
