“ I Am John Galt is a hymn to free men, free minds and free markets. It’s a loving look at the heroes who are living those values and moving the world forward. It’s also a crushing no-holds-barred indictment of the parasites who are trying to destroy our world of freedom and prosperity.” — Don Luskin
We are kind of excited about this book because of the interview with John Allison — former CEO of the successful BB&T (a bank that did not need but was forced to accept bailout funds against their will — more on that in a future post). His description “The Leader: John Allison as John Galt, the man who walked away after building America’s strongest bank.”
“From John Allison you can learn not only to live your own life in accordance with Rand’s values, but to teach them to others you work with. At Allison’s bank, Branch Banking and Trust Company (BB&T), every one of the 30,000 employees has been trained in Rand’s value system—from the executive suite to the teller line. Self-evidently, it works.’
“Are you looking for a concrete plan to put the value system of Rand’s heroes to work in your own life? Allison has written one for you, by identifying and articulating BB&T’s 10 core values. You don’t have to work there to put those values to work in your life. Do it on your own, and then put yourself through the ongoing process that all BB&T employees experience: Every six months, give yourself a rigorous self-evaluation based on how you’ve measured up to the values.”
