Earlier this week, the Ayn Rand Institute in Irvine, CA announced that Penguin Random House will be publishing a “lost” novel that Rand wrote in 1934.

Back in July I wrote an article concerning a simply hilarious piece by Kevin Drum over at Mother Jones wherein regulation is defended as deregulation.
