Rand, I think, would not be very impressed with today’s CEO’s or “industrialists.” The way way Elon Musk takes billions of dollars in subsidies would have disgusted her as would the leftist social focus of most big business.

Well, she’d be equally disgusted by Musk, who *clearly* steers towards businesses where the government is willing to fund him, and by the government who wants to fund him.

Nor would she, in my view, be particularly enamoured of Trump’s business practices, which has made the creative use of bankruptcy an enabler in making risky investments (moral hazard).

I think she would have liked Ted Cruz and Scott Walker though.

Walker especially, I think.
