Tuesday’s HausGuest: Ayn Rand Institute’s Don Watkins

Don Watkins is a fellow at the Ayn Rand Institute and he just co-authored a book that really caught my attention:

Equal is Unfair

The book releases next month and here’s a snippet of the description:

We’ve all heard that the American Dream is vanishing, and that the cause is rising income inequality. The rich are getting richer by rigging the system in their favor, leaving the rest of us to struggle just to keep our heads above water. To save the American Dream, we’re told that we need to fight inequality through tax hikes, wealth redistribution schemes, and a far higher minimum wage.

The critics of inequality are right about one thing: the American Dream is under attack. But instead of fighting to make America a place where anyone can achieve success, they are fighting to tear down those who already have. The real key to making America a freer, fairer, more prosperous nation is to protect and celebrate the pursuit of success―not pull down the high fliers in the name of equality.

Given that MASSES of Americans are totally feeling the Bern!, in large part inspired by his campaign to stop inequality, this topic could not be more timely.

And given that free-market capitalism is one of my very favorite topics, I’m extremely excited to have Don on the show to talk about it!

We will address questions like these:

  • Isn’t a wealth or income gap an indicator of a broken system?
  • Why is the quest for income equality immoral and destined to fail?
  • Doesn’t capitalism leave too many behind?
  • Can’t capitalism’s results be helped by intervention?

You’re not going to want to miss this.
