Greenspan is a lifelong devotee of Ayn Rand, whose books The Virtue of Selfishness and Atlas Shrugged are the bibles of free-marketeers. I actually loved them myself. When I was 11. I grew out of them, but Greenspan never did.
And, as any self-respecting fan of Rand knows, the guiding principle of her work is rational self-interest. The problem is, what's in the self-interest of the CEO of Halliburton is most likely not in the self-interest of your average American.
That is a quote from Arianna Huffington, posted on September 25, 2007 in a an essay conducting a comparison review of Naomi Klein's Shock Doctrine and Alan Greenspan's The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World.
What can this possibly mean?
