Yaron Brook

“Yaron Brook (Hebrew: ירון ברוק‎; born 1961) is the current president and executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute, an educational non-profit organization in Irvine, California, whose mission is to promote the novels of Ayn Rand and her philosophy of Objectivism. He regularly speaks at universities, corporations, and professional and community groups across America, addressing a wide-range of current events and philosophical issues from an Objectivist perspective. He is a frequent radio guest on The Thom Hartmann Program, a weekly guest on the Fox Business Network[1][2], and has appeared many times on national TV shows such as CNBC’s On the Money[3]. He is interviewed for his expertise on the Middle East, business ethics issues, and the economy. He served in the Israeli Army military intelligence, and he is a former professor with a PhD in finance.[4] …”

“…In 1987 Brook moved to the United States to study at the University of Texas at Austin (UT). At UT he received his MBA (in 1989) and his PhD in finance (in 1994). He was subsequently hired to teach finance at Santa Clara University in California, where he was an assistant professor for seven years. He was an award-winning teacher and developed a popular class on Finance and Ethics.[1]

In 1998 Brook (with Robert Hendershott) started an investment consulting business called BH Equity Research, located in San Jose, California. He is currently a managing partner of that firm.[2] He also co-founded Lyceum International in 1994, a company that organized Objectivist conferences and offered distance-learning courses.[3]

Brook left Santa Clara University in 2000 to become president and executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute, which was then located in Marina del Rey, California. The Institute moved to Irvine, California in 2002.[4] …”

The Government Did It
Yaron Brook

“…All of these government factors contributed to creating a situation in which millions of people were buying homes they could not afford, in which the participants experienced the illusion of prosperity, in which billions upon billions of dollars were going into bad investments. Eventually the bubble burst; the rest is history.

Given that our government was behind the wheel, influencing every aspect of the mortgage crisis, it is absurd to call today’s situation the result of insufficient regulation.

We do not need more regulation or economic “steering”–laws or bureaucrats dictating to financiers and investors the kind of innovation they may or may not engage in. If that were the solution to economic problems, then Hugo Chavez would preside over the world’s healthiest economy in Venezuela. What we need to do is remove the government’s power to coerce, bribe, reward and bail out irrational decisions. The unfree market has failed. It’s time for a truly free market.

Yaron Brook is managing director of BH Equity Research and executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute.”

Leave the lights on: Celebrate Human Achievement Hour

By Michelle Malkin  

I mentioned earlier this week that my friends at CEI are leading a counter-movement today to answer the enviro-nitwits’ “Earth Hour” with Human Achievement Hour.

Leave the lights on between 8:30pm and 9:30pm and watch this video with your friends and family! …”

Celebrate Human Achievement Hour

By Michelle Malkin 

“…This weekend, enviro-zealots will celebrate “Earth Hour” by turning off their lights. They’ve pulled this stunt for a few years now. But this time, they’ve added a new twist: “This year, Earth Hour has been transformed into the world’s first global election, between Earth and global warming. For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming.”

How about voting for human achievement? Michelle Minton at the Competitive Enterprise Institute has a good proposal: …”

 Three Amigos

“…Three Amigos! is a 1986 comedy western film, produced by George Folsey, Jr. and Lorne Michaels. John Landis directed. Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, and Martin Short star. The movie was written by Steve Martin, Lorne Michaels, and Randy Newman. Randy Newman contributed three original songs: “The Ballad of the Three Amigos”, “My Little Buttercup” and “Blue Shadows”, while the musical score was composed by Elmer Bernstein. It was shot in Simi Valley, California, Coronado National Forest, Old Tucson Studios, and Hollywood. It was originally entitled The Three Caballeros and Steve Martin was to be teamed with Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi. This film is 79. on Bravo’s “100 Funniest Movies.”

In the year 1916, three prissy silent film actors are fired after they demand a higher salary for their popular “Three Amigos” western films. Later that day they receive a plea from the villagers of Santo Poco who have been under siege from the infamous villain El Guapo (“The Handsome Guy”). Mistaking the plea for an acting job, the actors steal their costumes and travel to Santo Poco. The villagers give the actors a hero’s welcome, believing them to be bona fide gunfighters. After a nearly fatal confrontation with El Guapo, the actors realize the danger to which they are now subject. They panic and plan a hasty retreat, leaving the villagers at the mercy of El Guapo. They soon return to the village and, upon seeing the devastation caused by the bandits, decide to step up and become the Three Amigos for real. …”
