  1. Over the weekend, The Hill published a new column by Elan Journo, in which he discusses on how the UCLA encourages students to be “contemptuous of intellectual freedom.” Link to original
  2. Today is Valentine’s Day, a holiday on which we celebrate romantic love. But, what exactly is romantic love? According to Ayn Rand, “Love is a response to values. . . . One falls in love with the embodiment of the values that formed a person’s character, which are reflected in his widest goals or smallest gestures, which create the style of his soul — the individual style of a unique, unrepeatable, irreplaceable consciousness.” Link to original
  3. Here was the scene recently in the ARI parking lot — employees with dollies and carts unloading boxes from the back of an 18-wheeler. The boxes contain books — copies of Ayn Rand’s works, like Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead and Philosophy: Who Needs It. Link to original
  4. Maria Asvos has been an English teacher in the Chicago area for seventeen years. She’s participated in ARI’s free books to teachers and essay contest programs for fifteen of those years. She explains why. Link to original
  5. We have an extraordinary opportunity to promote Ayn Rand’s ideas throughout the United Kingdom — but we need your help. Link to original
  6. Now that her new podcast has launched, Ayn Rand Institute research associate Amanda Maxham is planning future episodes of Rise & Fall: How Ideas Move the World. “It’s important for me to always be learning and exploring,” Maxham said, “and for me this podcast is a tremendous opportunity to do that. I’m overwhelmed by amount of compelling and interesting content we have in audio archives — it’s hard to choose where to go next. But that’s a great problem to have. Link to original
  7. The Myth: New Deal regulation of the financial system made the system safer. The Reality: New Deal regulation of the financial system failed to address the real source of the problems that led to the Great Depression and laid the foundation for future crises. Link to original
  8. With the ongoing debate about Trump’s immigration ban in mind, it’s worth revisiting Ayn Rand’s thoughts on immigration. Link to original
  9. What is economic nationalism? Is it good or bad for America? How will it impact freedom and individual rights? Link to original
  10. Not too long ago, Fox News contributor and hedge fund manager Jonathan Hoenig asked ARI’s Yaron Brook, “Why should we practice free trade when other countries don’t?” Link to original
  11. For months, various newspapers have been trying to associate Donald Trump and his administration with Ayn Rand and her philosophy. Learn Liberty just published Steve Simpson’s all-new essay titled “Crony-In-Chief: Donald Trump Epitomizes Ayn Rand's ‘Aristocracy of Pull,’” in which he not only sets the record straight, but he also offers a radical solution to “cronyism.” Link to original
  12. Earlier this month, ARI announced the selection of its new CEO, Jim Brown. Jim has been an Objectivist for nearly fifty years, a donor and a participant in ARI activities and causes for the last eighteen years. Link to original
  13. The Myth: An unregulated free market and unrestricted Wall Street greed caused the Great Depression and only the interventionist policies of Franklin D. Roosevelt got us out. The Reality: The Great Depression was caused by government intervention, above all a financial system controlled by America’s central bank, the Federal Reserve — and the interventionist policies of Hoover and FDR only made things worse.

  14. “I’m a huge fan of podcasts,” said Amanda Maxham, host of the new Ayn Rand Institute podcast Rise & Fall: How Ideas Move the World. “The best ones are determined by the quality of thinking expressed in them. I’ve often listened to podcasts about some topic I’m interested in and think how much more compelling they would be if they included an Objectivist perspective.” Link to original
  15. Fox News contributor and hedge fund manager Jonathan Hoenig will emcee two upcoming Ayn Rand Institute public events, in New York City and Chicago, called “Building a Future of Reason and Capitalism.” In a recent interview he shared some personal thoughts on the importance of ARI and what others can expect to gain by attending.
