Dreams Come Due: Government and Economics as If Freedom Mattered: A Libertarian Agenda

John Galt, Author Simon & Schuster $17.45 (318p) ISBN 978-0-671-61159-0
In A-to-Z fashion, this guide ranges over American political and economic life to present a thorough view of the libertarian philosophy, which favors individual liberty and property rights, and rejects all government. The author, borrowing his pseudonym ""John Galt'' from the hero of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, is lively and readable as he inveighs against everything associated with big government (bureaucracy, corruption, deficits, foreign aid, the progressive income tax, etc.) and celebrates free markets, competition and property rights (``the only natural rights human beings can have''). Like-minded readers will be delighted by Galt's savaging of the ``legal plunder'' made possible under ``envy-based laws'' and will also find the book a useful reference. (July)
