Upcoming Events: Atlas Summer, starting June 21st


Atlas Shrugged (1957): 1368 pages of pure pro-capitalist ranty awesomeness.  The Battlefield Earth of Objectivist tracts.

Atlas Shrugged (2011?): The Battlefield Earth of Objectivist tracts.

Now that we got your attention — Angelina Jolie with firearms has that effect on people — Coffee for Closers is proud to announce its upcoming reading event: Atlas Summer.  Based on the popular Infinite Summer of last year, we will read Ayn Rand’s popular pro-capitalist novel, Atlas Shrugged, offering trenchant commentary, economic analysis, and comparative critique.  (How does the work stack up against the writings of Adam Smith, Karl Marx, and others?)  What better time to critique a work of free market fundamentalism than during the Great Recession?
