A while back I posted a presentation by BB&T banker John Allison in which he explained how his bank uses Objectivist values to make enormous profits. (Watch here if you haven’t seen it before, or watch it again, but with a pen and paper this time to take notes. :-) )
Anyway, by way of “contrast,” here’s a snippet of an interview with Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales – with whom I used to engage on the old Atlantis email list back in the early days of email – addressing how Objectivist philosophy guides his non-profit work.
If you think those two views represent a contradiction, then you really haven’t understood much about Objectivism. Watch and see why.
