Content descriptions

General Note: "Originally published in the U.K. in 2014 by Myriad Editions under the title Supercrash: How to Hijack the Global Economy."--Title page verso.
Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references (pages 225-227).
Formatted Contents Note: Part one: Ayn Rand -- Part two: The crash -- Part three: the age of selfishness.
Summary, etc.: Using Rand's biography to illuminate the policies that led to the economic crash in the U.S. and in Europe and the global financial crisis of 2008, Cunningham shows how her philosophy continues to affect today's politics and policies, starting with her most noted disciple, economist Alan Greenspan (former chairman of the Federal Reserve). Cunningham also shows how right-wing conservatives, libertarians, and the Tea Party movement have co-opted Rand's teachings (and inherent contradictions) to promote personal gain and profit at the expense of the middle class.
