Unfortunately, my copy of _Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal_ is in storage at the moment (along with most of my political and economic library), but I'll search my much-worn edition of _Atlas_ tonight.

I'll be glad to attempt to find the quote... Remind me tommorow if you don't see it. Grab your copy of "Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal" I think it's either in the first essay or in one of the appendices.

I think she also mentions that the idea of society is nonsense in Atlas Shrugged.

I will endeavor to find the exact quote and post it. wrote:
