Equal is unfair : America's misguided fight against income inequality by Don Watkins( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To save the American Dream we're told that we need to fight inequality through tax hikes, wealth redistribution schemes, and a far higher minimum wage. Watkins and Brook believe that the American Dream is under attack-- but that the real key to making America a freer, fairer, more prosperous nation is to protect and celebrate the pursuit of success. They show that the minimum wage hurts the very people it purports to help, and that middle-class stagnation is a myth

Equal is unfair : America's misguided fight against income inequality by Don Watkins( Recording )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A startling and controversial argument that claims the key to reviving the American dream of limitless opportunity is not to fight income inequality-- but to celebrate unequal achievement. We've all heard the story. The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer. The American Dream has all but vanished, obliterated by astounding income inequality. To save the American Dream, we're told that we need to fight inequality through tax hikes, wealth redistribution schemes, and a far higher minimum wage. But what if that's wrong? What if the real threat to the American dream isn't rising income inequality-- but an all-out war on success? In Equal Unfair, Don Watkins and Yaron Brook reveal why: CEOs make so much money-- and deserve to; The minimum wage hurts the people it purports to help; middle-class stagnation is a myth; Sweden's history reveals the dangers of forced inequality"--Container

The financial crisis : what happened and why? by Yaron Brook( Recording )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Mainstream media and mainstream economists have blamed today's financial crisis on a failure of "free markets." This course sets the record straight. Dr. Brook describes the actual evolution of the crisis, from the government policies that gave rise to it to the unprecedented expansion of government control over the economy that has followed. He places special emphasis on illustrating how this crisis is an example of the Austrian economists' business cycle theory."--Website

From the government and here to help( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"From the financial crisis to Obamacare to the budget debates, the size and scope of government is being debated across the country. One side calls for more regulation to foster equitable prosperity because the free market is out of control. The other side says government has grown too big and intrusive; we need to mitigate its power while rediscovering the founders' principles. Dr. Yaron Brook, Executive Director of the Ayn Rand Institute, and Dr. David Callahan, Co-Founder of Demos, join Ford Hall Forum President Dominick Ianno to debate the fundamental social, economic, and moral ideas that underlie politics in America today."--Ford Hall Forum website
Reaping is a virtue( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Moderator Jeff Jacoby of the Boston Globe asks Yaron Brook, President of the Ayn Rand Institute, and Deborah Kincade Rambo, LICSW, President of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Boston: is charity an expression of virtue? Brook delves into Ayn Rand's beliefs that charity should be undertaken only in self-interest and not out of a sense of false morality--or, worse, guilt. He explains that Rand's followers would rather applaud the act of making money than giving it away. Rambo counters that charity as a virtue is critical to our collective well-being, enriching our society as it promotes a healthy economy. She argues that self-sacrifice through philanthropy is a form of love in which people of any (or no) religion can participate. Join us as we determine whether benevolence or earning is the real virtue."--Ford Hall Forum website
The Gains from Takeover Deregulation: Evidence from the End of Interstate Banking Restrictions by Yaron Brook( )

1 edition published in 1998 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper uses interstate banking deregulation to explore the benefits of takeover deregulation and how these benefits are distributed across different firms. We find large and significant abnormal returns around the Interstate Banking and Branching Efficiency Act of 1994 which imply it created $85 billion of value in the banking industry. Consistent with an active market for corporate control allowing beneficial consolidation and providing needed discipline, there is a strong negative relationship between banks' abnormal returns and their prior performance. Consistent with managerial entrenchment limiting takeover discipline, banks with higher insider ownership, lower outside block ownership, and/or less independent boards have lower abnormal returns

Antitrust is immoral by Gary Hull( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In this provocative lecture, Dr. Gary Hull, director of the program on values and ethics in the marketplace at Duke University, argues that the targets of antitrust are not criminals but victims. Their much-revived monopoly power is not coercive or destructive ; it is the life-giving power to produce products that are incredibly appealing to customers and far superior to those of laggard competitors. Antitrust law, argues Dr. Hull is fundamentally unjust : it throttles, punishes and sacrifices America's best producers for the sake of their inferiors ..."--Cover label

Corporate Governance and Recent Consolidation in the Banking Industry by Yaron Brook( )

1 edition published in 2000 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Using the universe of publicly traded banks at year-end 1993, we find that target banks' outside directors, but not inside directors, tend to own more stock than their counterparts in other banks. Having an outside blockholder is also associated with banks becoming targets. In contrast to existing research on industrial firms, board structure does not help determine which sample banks sell. Neither the fraction of outsiders on a bank's board nor having an outside-dominated board differentiate the target banks in our sample. Instead, outside directors/shareholders and blockholders appear to be primarily responsible for encouraging bank managers to accept an attractive merger offer
