  Companies in Atlas Shrugged - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Companies in Atlas Shrugged, the Ayn Rand novel, generally, are divided into two groups, thse that are operated by sympathetic characters are given the name of the owner, while companies operated by evil or incompetent characters are given generic names.
In Atlas Shrugged men who give their names to their companies all become Strikers in due time.
Each man who ran the company saw it grow by 10% in his lifetime, so by the time Francisco d'Anconia heads the company it is the largest in the world.

 rinku: today's points - corporations/companies/mission | imagining the far future instead of thinking about the near ...
i have found that companies are by and large alright, but corporations (companies that have stocks, and are therefore not owned, but shared among thousands or millions of owners) are terrible.
a company that is ownd to one or two or three people who all meet every day and know eachother and have a shared vision for what the company means to them, i would call that a capitalistic company.
that's more of a communistic company to me. the irony i see is that the thing that so-called communists hate is communistic companies, and the strongest individual proponents of so-called 'group spirit' are fighting against the 'group spirit' of the corporation, not the 'individual spirit' of capitalism, which they claim to hate.

 Scandals lead execs to 'Atlas Shrugged' and an introduction to Ayn Rand   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Atlas Shrugged is not meant as a pulitzer prize winning piece of fiction, it is meant as a culminating representation of Ayn Rand's ideals.
Atlas Shrugged ranked No. 429 on Amazon.com June through August this year, and some weeks it threatens to crack the Top 100 among more than 2 million listed.
But Atlas Shrugged is more point-blank with Rand's philosophy, and it's the second-most-influential book of all time, a distant second to the Bible, according to a survey of 5,000 Book-of-the-Month Club members taken a decade ago for the Library of Congress.

 Review of Atlas Shrugged
Atlas Shrugged was written by self-styled philosopher Ayn Rand (born Alissia Rosenbaum, in St. Petersburg in 1905 for what that's worth).
The only way in which Atlas Shrugged can be said to succeed is in its presentation of Objectivist principles, which are laid out in John Galt's long, long, long radio broadcast near the end of the book.
Ultimately, the effect of reading Atlas Shrugged is comparable to being on the receiving end of a long, hysterical, and largely baffling lecture about a subject you're not really very interested in.

 Archive | March 20, 2000 | Atlas shrugged at Boeing
The last straw came during the latest round of union negotiations, when the blue-collar worker's union won huge concessions from the company -- and engineers were told to tighten their belts.
It's true that Boeing engineers were never forced to work at the company, and that the company's stock shares are privately owned.
Instead, thanks to 'government reform,' big business leaders are protected by special legislation and lengthy legal delay periods that allow the execs time to threaten to wreck the company's balance sheet, rendering it unattractive for corporate takeover by more competent management teams.

 Atlas Shrugged and the revolution
If you’ve ever read Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand you might appreciate the irony of having one of Rand’s supporters and co-authors Alan Greenspan play a major roll in perpetrating the same kind of fascist/national socialist fraud on the American people and global investors that the 'second handers' in Rand's story do.

While he argued for such a combination in the context of a socialist economy, he opposed centralized planning and thought that manager-engineers should function autonomously and take into account the particulars of time and place (e.g., the availability of local materials).
There may be similarities here to Rand's entrepreneur-engineers, who apply their rational judgement to their own companies and steer clear of broader industry groupings or (mostly) working for others.
