Utopians all …

… Ayn Rand and the Literary Origins of the Financial Crisis – (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

I think comparing Alan Greenspan's tenure at the Fed to Lenin's activities is something of a stretch, and I wouldn't take a Congressional report as gospel, either. But the utopian thread is worth noting. I wouldn't be surprised to find, though, that Putin has a warm spot in his otherwise cold heart for Dostoyevsky's view of Russian destiny.
