Remnant Trust Description

Classic Confrontation. (1905-1982) Russian born American novelist. Rand’s novels which include We The Living, The Fountainhead, and Atlas Shrugged are polemical and melodramatic vehicles for her ideas. In her objectivist philosophy, she defends capitalism and attacks government and other controls for inhibiting the self-interested individuals whom she has pictured in her novels.
