    Ayn Rand was not an economist, but had some very strong “ideas” about how it should work – one of her greatest followers was Alan Greenspan (the Bubble man) – interesting reading about her salon… Wonder if she would ever have realized that her “ideals” caused this much havoc.

    Greenspan betrayed Rand’s ideals. Her ideals have not been put into place in any measure, so how can you claim they caused this havoc? Actually, if anyone’s ideals are getting implemented it is Wesley Mouch and James Taggart’s. Two of the book’s villains. Greenspan represents perhaps the greatest villain: the sellout who knew better. He is often compared to Dr. Robert Stadler from the book, who was exactly that.

    The theory that Ayn Rand follows is much like that of Brave New World. In all her books, the dystopian theory surrounds every modern conflict. Interesting, yet considerably realistic with a flair of fantasy.

    I am pretty sure that an “OVERT” default will take place. Because there is a “COVERT” default by printing more stocks of money which leads to shrinking debt values, as more money supplied means each dollar bill is equivalent to substantially less than a dollar.

    Now, WHY “OVERT”? I am not so sure about this but the government just unveiled their “Apocalypse” aircraft. When you try to connect the dots, the government is certain about something really messy to happen. And the purpose of the aircraft? To fly away from the mess! If one thinks this way, the debate about the debt ceiling becomes more of a theatrical performance: each lawmaker has his/her own script, and the performance is entitled “TRAGEDY”.

    Oh by the way, what I mean by “OVERT” default is outright non-payment, or the act of reneging, on its debts.
